Archaeology subgroup leader of the Salisbury Plain Training Area (SPTA) Larkhill and Westdown Conservation Group.

Basically, I have the task of trying to prevent the military obliterating the ancient landscape by driving over barrows and field systems in tanks or blowing them up for target practice.

To be fair to them they do try to be as careful as they can, and Salisbury Plain wouldn't have anything like the amount of well preserved archaeology had they not taken it over 100 years ago. It's been a long while since they took pot shots at landrovers parked on long barrows, thankfully.

If visiting the SPTA, please take note that access is ONLY allowed on public rights of way and you may ONLY enter when the range warning flags are not flying.

DO NOT STEP OFF THE PUBLIC RIGHTS OF WAY - this is an active military firing range and training area, littered with a century's worth of unexploded munitions.
