‘The biggest, oldest, most popular and most diverse…’ That’s how just a handful of the talks could be described at this year’s Festival of Archaeology. For the fourth year, the weekend will be crammed with well-known faces, activities for all the family, fascinating talks and news from the latest developments in archaeology, all set in the beautiful grounds and nationally designated collections of Salisbury Museum.
