Salisbury old, Salisbury new


"Sarum" was the Roman name of Salisbury.  "Old" Sarum is the term for the former site of Salisbury, just outside of "New" Salisbury.  Remarkably, the city upped sticks, and moved, almost lock, stock, and everything else, to the present site.  Old Sarum - an Iron Age fort, actually, survives well, though, and both "Old" and "New" are worth eyeballing - at any level.
