Causewayed enclosure at Larkhill

Homes for Heroes; Pandoras' Box


Over the past four years, excavations have been undertaken on three sites (Larkhill, Tidworth, Bulford) earmarked for service family accommodation on behalf of the Army Basing Program- our excavations at Larkhill were the largest open area excavations ever undertaken in proximity to Stonehenge.

The talk will outline Early Neolithic discoveries (Causewayed enclosure, burial and occupation), Early Bronze Age discoveries (Beaker burials etc), two unique and now Scheduled henges side by side, over 70 Neolithic pits containing structured deposits, Anglo-Saxon cemeteries and, the largest WWI practise battlefield ever excavated (9 km or trenches, 300 m of subterranean tunnel systems, over 400 pieces of WWI graffiti).

7.00pm for a 7.30pm start on Thursday 18 October.
Si Cleggett will be talking at the Dinton Village Hall, Dinton, Salisbury, SP3 5EB. £3 on the door.
