TIM BARRON takes you on a journey through the Wessex civilisations with the latest scientific discoveries and re-analysis of existing information leading to some astonishing ‘new‘ finds.
Wessex is the ancient title for the area of central southern England notably the rolling chalk lands of Salisbury plain, rich in stone age, bronze age and iron age archaeology. Perhaps the most significant innovation is to look at the spectacular megalith Stonehenge as part of the massive group of significant structures that surround it. To look at it in isolation is akin to studying a Cathedral without referring to a city’s surrounding countryside, its history and religions and most importantly its people.
We will look at over 5000 years of civilisation from the Stone age to the origins of Salisbury cathedral in the 1200s. The ups and downs of earth, stone & wood megastructures, some well known, others less so, some waiting to be explored, others still to be discovered!
