HS2 Uncovering Park Street
Did you know that one of the biggest archaeological digs in the UK has been taking place in Birmingham? A team of archaeologists has excavated the Park Street burial ground, close to the city centre. In this webinar you’ll be able to hear about what they’ve discovered and what it tells us about life and death in Birmingham during the 19th century.
Towards the end of the webinar, you’ll get the chance to ask the team questions via a live Q&A session. (Please note the content of this webinar may include images of human remains and discussion about causes of death).
About HS2 Archaeology programme
High Speed Two (HS2) is the new high speed railway for Britain. Before we build bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations, the largest archaeology programme ever undertaken in the UK is taking place along the line of route.
Our archaeology programme is continuing to unearth discoveries across our sites. To share information about these works and some of the exciting finds uncovered we are running a series of online archaeology events to support Birmingham Heritage Week 2020.
