HS2 Archaeology works: Park Street Former Burial Ground
Did you know that one of the biggest archaeological digs in the UK has been taking place right here in Birmingham? As part of the preparations for HS2’s phase one, an archaeological team has been excavating the Park Street burial ground, close to the city centre. They’ve been discovering new information about life and death in Birmingham during the 19th century.
As archaeological excavations of Park Street burial ground by LM for HS2 come to a close, find out what has been learned so far about life and death in 19th century Birmingham.
Allan Fatah will take us on the journey.
