Monuments to the Dead

Lockdown Lecture presented by Phil Harding

Phil Harding reflects on the excavation of the site of Bulford Camp in Wiltshire. From the earliest times, mankind has felt the need to mark and memorialise significant places, and Bulford is no exception. In this lecture, Phil recounts the different eras uncovered during excavation of the site, from early burials, to ring ditches, to pits with sophisticated grave goods. From there, he traces a connection from the Neolithic to the Napoleonic through his work on the battlefield of Waterloo.
