We run occasional courses on topics relating to archaeology, art and history, please see the Courses section of our events calendar to see if any are running.
External lectures, talks and walks
We offer a range of talks to groups and societies, including NADFAS, WI, archaeological societies and local history societies.
Standard talks include:
- Gold from the Time of Stonehenge - Summary: The Wiltshire Museum is the home of the best Bronze Age collections in Britain. The talk outlines the remarkable craftsmanship and stunning objects found with the burials of the chieftains, important women and priests who used Stonehenge for their ceremonies.
- The Story of Stonehenge
- Wiltshire's White Horses
- WW2 in Devizes
- The Story of Devizes

We can bring data projector and screen. We normally ask for a £45 donation plus travelling expenses.
Many of the talks are given by our Director, David Dawson. This is a short biography - David is the Director of the award-wining Wiltshire Museum in Devizes, and is an archaeologist who has worked in museums in Sussex, Canterbury and Oxfordshire. For more background, please see David's staff page.
