Wessex Archaeology staff and volunteers mingled in the sun at this year’s Volunteer Summer Picnic.
Hosting the picnic is just one of the ways we are able to say thank you to our fantastic volunteer team for all their hard work. Recent volunteer projects have included processing the Bronze Age and Saxon artefacts from Barrow Clump 2014, as well as a range of Roman material from Chedworth Roman Villa on behalf of the National Trust.
We were joined at the picnic by a team of Operation Nightingale participants, who are currently excavating an Iron Age site on Salisbury Plain. They popped into Wessex Archaeology HQ for a tour of the building and to find out what happens once the digging is done.
