Explore the mysterious moated mound at Soulton Hall

Join Maiya and Tim as we explore a huge, moated mound at Soulton Hall in Shropshire. It measures about 18m x 22m, and is about 2m high. But how old is it? And who built it? The origins of this ancient monument are an ongoing archaeological mystery, and this is your chance to help us solve it!

You’ll get to take a tour of the mound itself, find out what our archaeologists have discovered there, and even have a go at guessing how old you think it is!

At the end, we’ll share our answer and then give you a special peek *inside* another amazing monument… the first barrow that has been built in Shropshire for 5000 years.
