found buried in the village of West Lavington in Wiltshire, England. Height: 16" Width: 11" NOTE: Wiltshire is notable for its pre-Roman archaeology. The Mesolithic, Neolithic, and Bronze Age people that occupied southern Britain built settlements on the hills and down land that cover Wiltshire. Stonehenge and Avebury are perhaps the most famous Neolithic sites in the United Kingdom. In the 6th and 7th centuries Wiltshire was at the western edge of Saxon Britain, as Cranborne Chase and the Somerset Levels prevented the advance to the west. The Battle of Bedwyn was fought in 675 between Escuin, a West Saxon nobleman who had seized the throne of Queen Saxburga, and King Wulfhere of Mercia. In 878, the Danes invaded the county. Following the Norman Conquest, large areas of the country came into the possession of the crown and the church.
