Professor Alice Roberts officially opened the new world-class £2.4 million Wessex Gallery of Archaeology at Salisbury Museum.

The Gallery which faces Salisbury Cathedral in The Close, houses one of England’s most extensive collections of Stonehenge and prehistoric artefacts including the recently discovered Amesbury Archer – popularly dubbed the ‘King of Stonehenge’. With more than 2,000 rare and exciting pieces on show, Wessex Gallery gives a fascinating and never-before-seen insight into early Britain, from the mathematical genius of the ancient Britons and Beaker people through to the Roman invasion, the Norman Conquest and medieval Salisbury.
