Flowery Delivery to Wiltshire by Clare Florist
A predominantly rural county, Wiltshire is characterised by its high downland and wide valleys. One of the most notable sites located here is Stonehenge which is at Salisbury Plain. Other than that, the city of Salisbury is also home to a medieval cathedral. Plus, there are several country houses that are also open to the public, including Longleat and Stourhead.
Wiltshire is quite notable for its pre-Roman archaeology. People from the Mesolithic, Neolithic, and Bronze Age that occupied southern Britain built settlements on the hills and downlands in the county. Two of the most famous Neolithic sites are Stonehenge and Avebury.
The 6th and 7th centuries in Wiltshire were at the western edge of Saxon Britain. Cranborne Chase and the Somerset Levels stopped the advance towards the west. In 675, the Battle of Bedwyn was fought between Escuin, a West Saxon nobleman who seized the throne of Queen Saxburga and King Wulfhere of Mercia.
In 878, the Danes invaded Wiltshire. The county came into the possession of the crown and church after the Norman Conquest.
