The Stonehenge Chubb Centenary Day July 8th 2018
The Stonehenge Chubb Centenary Day, at Shrewton near Stonehenge, included several cricket matches between teams of archaeologists and Shrewton village.

The cricket matches were played in good spirit with some of the archaeologists dressing for the period.
