Saturday 8 September 2012 – Saturday 12 January 2013. This photographic exhibition captures the actions and emotions of archaeologists from universities across Britain whilst they carried out ground-breaking new work to reinterpret the Stonehenge landscape. Bill Bevan was resident photographer on site for three years during the excavations of the internationally important Stonehenge Riverside Project (2004-2010). His photographs and the accompanying text offer the visitor an unusual and revealing vantage point from which to view the archaeologists at work.
Stonehenge Riverside Project is a joint collaboration between archaeologists at the Universities of Sheffield, Manchester, Bristol, UCL and Bournemouth. This exhibition has been funded by Arts Council England and Manchester University in partnership with Salisbury Museum.
