A new exhibition has opened at the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum.

The exhibition is entitled Making History: Antiquaries in Britain 1707-2007 . It is presented in association with the Society of Antiquaries of London and is focused on the development of archaeological practice from antiquarianism to archaeological computation.

The exhibition development involved several Southampton graduates, including preparation of the acclaimed catalogue. Animated IT components visible in the exhibition include an Anglo-Saxon hanging bowl developed by members of the Archaeological Computing Research Group at Southampton. Other IT work on show includes a demonstration of different forms of high tech laser scanning, employed by Southampton archaeological computing graduates now working at Wessex Archaeology .

The exhibition will run from 4 October 2008 until 3 January 2009. After Salisbury the exhibition's next venues are Stoke on Trent, Sunderland, and then Lincoln.
