You cannot expand the A303 to dual carriageway without destroying the barrows and ditches either side of the road. Tunneling under is sacrilege to the growing Neopaganists. My answer would be to close the A303 between Amesbury and Winterbourne Stoke to all but local traffic (very little) and divert the road south between the two points Then set up Park and ride services for tourists from thoe two places for access to the monument landscape with perhaps guides on the buses to help the tourists understand the lanscape Perhaps longterm employment for archaeologists until the UK housing market recovers
Pickles galore! Crossrail archaeologists have found over 13,000 jam jars, pickle pots and relishes from one of London's first condiment shops, including mushroom ketchup, Newcastle marmalade, piccalili and plum jam. Which one would you most like to try??
Remember this urn? It's the one we found buried upside down, on a hill in Lancashire and then broadcast LIVE from the lab as we opened it up. Our first set of results on what was inside is about to come in. Before they do, here's Neil Wilkin, curator of the Bronze Age collection at the British Museum on why this discovery is so very important to our understanding of the Bronze Age in northern England.
