Friday visitors

Friday of last week saw a special visit by the Secretary of State Rt Hon Maria Miller. She was visiting the new visitor centre and took the land train down to see Stonehenge, but also stopped to speak to the project team and one of our volunteers about the Neolithic houses project. She was very interested and asked lots of good questions!

Accompanying the minister was the English Heritage chairman, Sir Laurie Magnus.

We also had a mini-celebrity visit, in the shape of Dr Mark Horton, an archaeology professor from the University of Bristol, best known for his presenting role in Coast.

And our final visitor on Friday? Lots of spring sunshine! The dry weather is certainly helping progress, with one of the houses having a now entirely woven roof. We have started thatching this one with knotted thatch. We hope to finish the rest of the weaving on the other houses this week.
