Soldiers at Stonehenge:
Salisbury Plain and the journey to the First World War
Stonehenge stood at the heart of the world’s largest military training camp during the First World War with 180,000 soldiers based there at any one time. This centenary exhibition tells the story of the Stonehenge landscape, its neighbouring communities and how they were dramatically altered by the Great War.
With access to an incredible archive of photographs and period postcards, objects and their personal stories were supported by a rich visual language of original imagery, giving the narratives a strong sense of place and embedding the stories within the landscape of Salisbury Plain.
