Dr Alex Langlands, in a video produced by Inside Wiltshire, describes how members of the Young Archaeologists Club and the Young Curators Club helped to rediscover the remains of a long-forgotten 18C/19C cottage in Stratford sub Castle during the first week of excavations by the Old Sarum Landscapes Project Team in July 2019..

Alex remarked that "Although this is recent archaeology it is a salient reminder of how quickly we can forget our past."

 

Some of the finds were displayed at the Salisbury Museum's Festival of Archaeology in July 2019.
