Original News item 13 May

With Salisbury Museum closed for the foreseeable future, Director Adrian Green has launched the first of a series of short YouTube videos to show artefacts and behind the scenes areas of the museum.

The first video features some of the oldest artefacts in the Museum, flint handaxes that provide some of the earliest evidence of human occupation in the Salisbury area, around half a million years ago. They were discovered at Milford Hill in the 19C when new houses were being built.

Part 2 - items from the Heavy Objects store
