Local archaeologist, Phil Harding, (a familiar face from Channel 4’s Time Team) will be livening up the afternoon with his tales about the excavations at Bulford and other interesting digs. This will be followed by a very short AGM to present a summary of our activities from the last 2 years and to elect/re-elect our Trustees.
