Digging War Horse

A project which uses archaeology to explore the role of the horse and artillery in the Great War. The project was launched at Larkhill school on the 10th of September and will explore the location of the Larkhill Horse Isolation Hospital and the lives of the animals and people on this part of Salisbury Plain in World War One.

More information on the project can be found at the Digging War Horse website.

The archaeology work is under the  stewardship of Julian Richards, who will be using geophysical survey, maps and then field-walking and test pitting to see if he can locate the site of the First World War horse hospital.
