Operation Nightingale: Time Warriors

‘Operation Nightingale: Time Warriors’ follows the progress of an exciting archaeological excavation on Salisbury Plain. This dig was conducted by the army with help from Wessex Archaeology as part of Operation Nightingale, a military initiative to use archaeology in the recovery of injured soldiers.

This documentary was created by young people from Salisbury as part of Project Florence. The 14-18 year old volunteers were trained by professional filmmakers to film, edit and produce the movie, and have achieved their Bronze Arts Awards as a result.

This film has been produced by Wessex Archaeology working in collaboration with the Salisbury Arts Centre, the British Army and the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, and has been kindly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
