Time Team Display


Wessex Archaeology has been involved with Time Team from the very beginning through one of the programme’s best known characters, Phil Harding. In 2008 Time Team came to Salisbury to dig around the cathedral. They were searching for the site of the 13th century Bell Tower and the 15th century Chantry Chapel of Bishop Richard Beauchamp, both demolished in the 18th century. 
Following the programme, the Cathedral approached Wessex Archaeology's Graphics Team to prepare a special exhibition about the excavations. This was to be held in the Cloisters over the summer and autumn of 2009, and would include selected decorative stonework from the Cathedral’s own store. The brief was to design and supply eleven banners, a leaflet with a Bishop Beauchamp trail, two A3 posters to explain the stonework on display, and finally some artefacts from the Time Team dig and props to dress two display cases supplied by the Cathedral. 


The end product was exactly as briefed and I was impressed with both the speed of turnaround and the level of care displayed throughout. Wessex were a pleasure to work with”.
