THE FESTIVAL of Archaeology is back at the Salisbury Museum this weekend and has already drawn a crowd interested in finding out more about the past. 

With many artifacts on display and the grounds filled with stands, the history experts - including Professor Phil Harding are on hand to share their knowledge throughout the two-day festival.

Through them, the back story of Salisbury comes to life.

Celebrating 20 years since the Amesbury Archer’s grave was discovered, the museum has partnered with Wessex Archaeology and there is much to see and do for the whole family. 

For a minimum £2 donation, access is available to the stalls, talks, archery, and museum for the day. The festival is open from 10-5pm today (July 23) and on Sunday July 24.
