Local residents and school children alike enjoyed the open day at the newly discovered Roman settlement at Durrington.

Children aged between 6 and 9 years old from schools in both Durrington and Amesbury took the opportunity to see for themselves what digging for the past is like. They had a guided tour of the site and handled some of the Roman finds from the dig. The chance to wear a replica Roman helmet was a big hit!

After the school visits were over it was the turn of local families to come on the guided tours that were put on at the end of the working day. Some people enjoyed it so much that they came back a second time.
