Wiltshire is peppered with hillforts: reminders of Iron Age tribal conflict. Invasions and raids by Romans, Saxons, Vikings, and Normans followed. Wiltshire played a central role in the 12th century “Anarchy”, between Stephen and Matilda. The 17th century Civil War saw the vicious siege of Marlborough and the horrific Battle of Roundway Down. The training area on Salisbury Plain and other sites, such as early airfields, contributed to the First and Second World Wars.
