The Foundations of Archaeology Project celebrates the work of the pioneering archaeologists Sir Richard Colt Hoare, William Cunnington and General Pitt Rivers.

The project is working with volunteers to help further investigate and evaluate archaeological sites associated with these pioneers in South Wiltshire and North East Dorset

So why not drop us a line to get involved.
