Dateable Artefact of the Stonehenge Builders Found on A344

As the careful works goes on of restoring the A344 to turf and realigning the visitor's path to Stonehenge I was fortunate enough to lay my hands on an artefact that was dug up by the tunnel. It nearly blew away in the wind but years of litter catching training at Stonehenge enabled me to pounce on it.

I think it dates from the late 1960s when the present visitor centre and tunnel was built and the West Track was moved. I will send it to EH for their archaeologists to identify and date it fully..

UPDATE: - 1965 Golden Wonder launched unique packaging to keep crisps fresher for longer – using the “Crackle Fresh” slogan
