We were pleased to welcome a group of serving and veteran members of the Armed Services from Tedworth House to our Salisbury Office on Wednesday the 24 February. Tedworth House, a recovery centre run by Help for Heroes, is open to both serving and veteran members of the Armed Services who have suffered life changing injuries or illness whilst in service.
The group who visited came to find out about archaeology and see some of the work that we do. Si Cleggett, Project Manager started the afternoon off with a fascinating talk about archaeology and cultural heritage which sparked some interesting discussion within the group. The group were then given insight into the work of our Osteoarchaeologist Kirsten Egging Dinwiddy. Kirsten explained how and why archaeological human bones are studied. Using various examples, she also demonstrated how certain conditions, trauma and wear-and-tear can affect the skeleton.
It was an engaging afternoon for those who attended and a pleasure for Wessex to host.
