History
Resources from the web site of Well House Consultants on the subject of History. We provide open source training course and business hotel accommodation in Melksham, Wiltshire, England

Background
Lisa came to the UK from the USA - Florida - where "old" meant over 50 years old, and she loves all the history that's around us. We live (and our HQ) is a 200 year old house, and our training centre is over 100 years old. And, looking around, you'll find we're surrounded by history.

200 years ago, Melksham was the biggest town for many miles - bigger than Chippenham or Swindon. And much of that history remains. Looking further back (and a little further afield), you'll find the Civil War battlefield at Roundway ... and Avebury and Stonehenge, barrows hills and white horses cut in the chalk.

Fishermen using a net in a deep pool in the Avon in May 1838 had a big surprise when the net pulled up a very heavy object. It turned out to be the horns and part of the skull of an ox, about a third larger than anything they had ever seen before. It turned out to be part of a fossil skull ...
