Description

Salisbury Plain, as well as being the British Army's biggest training ground, is one of Europe's most extensive areas of undisturbed archaeology. Over 38,000 hectares - an area the size of the Isle of Wight - is given over to the military here.

Time Team was called in to investigate a site believed to contain the remains of settlements spanning both the Iron Age and the Roman era. The aim was to find sufficient evidence to get the site scheduled by English Heritage ¿ so protecting it for the future.
