Salisbury and District U3A

10:54am Thursday 24th July 2014

SALISBURY Museum's director, Adrian Green, reminded his audience at the July meeting about the importance attached to the collections at our local museum. The archaeological collection is recognised as of national importance, the Pitt-Rivers collection came from the 'father' of present-day archaeology, General Pitt-Rivers, who lived in south Wiltshire, and an astonishing number of artefacts have been found in Wiltshire locations. Stonehenge and Old Sarum come readily to mind, but Amesbury, Hindon, Swallowcliffe, Tisbury, Wardour, and Winterslow have also yielded clues about the lives of our ancestors. Who, for instance, was the lady who wore sandals soled with cork from Portugal around 700AD? Or the metal worker born in Switzerland over 4,000 years ago who brought his skills here?
