2,500 years of history uncovered in Melksham

A fascinating historical discovery evidencing from life as early as the Iron Age, from 700BC to AD43 has been made by a team from Cotswold Archaeology last year during Wiltshire Council’s preparation of Melksham Community Campus for construction work.

The space is part of a £23m project to provide a multi-facility community hub, which will include a pool, sports hall, library and gym.

Councillor Richard Clewer, Wiltshire Council leader and cabinet member for heritage, thanked Cotswold Archaeology for the “thorough and detailed work” they had carried out.
