Amesbury Museum set to open this weekend

Writing in The Salisbury Journal yesterday Morwenna Blake reports that -

"A NEW museum in Amesbury will be opening its doors this weekend with an exhibition about the town during the Mesolithic era. Amesbury, 3,000 years before Stonehenge will be the first exhibition to be held at the town council’s museum at the Melor Hall, which it bought for the purpose last month. Town mayor Andy Rhind-Tutt, who has launched a project to pull the community together under the banner of Amesbury 2012, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to complete on the purchase of the Melor Hall and put on this first exhibition for Amesbury.

"Over the Easter weekend there will be presentations at the hall each day, with visiting archaeologists including Professor Tim Darvill from Bournemouth University and Julian Richards of the BBC’s Meet the Ancestor."
