The exhibtion, presented in association with the Society of Antiquaries of London, explores the development of archaeology, from antiquarianism to the rise of modern professional archaeology. It features original works of art, manuscripts and artefacts from their wonderful collections.
Making History is a travelling exhibition, and after Salisbury it will move to Stoke on Trent, Sunderland, and Lincoln. It will be tailored to include relevant exhibits from each region, in addition to the exhibition’s core collection.
Entitled “Lasers and Light”, it contains some new footage generated from the Stonehenge LiDAR dataset, close-range laser scans of some bones (and skull) from the Amesbury Archer, and some laser scans of WWI and WWII graffiti carved into trees on Salisbury Plain. In the next week or so I will put it online and embed it here.
