Online Event – Park Street Burial ground
21st July @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Park Street Burial Ground
Did you know that one of the biggest archaeological digs in the UK has been taking place in Birmingham city centre ?
Park Street burial ground was begun in 1810 as an overspill burial site from St Martins. The Bull Ring cemetery was filling up as the local population underwent massive increase as the town expanded so this new site in Park Street was chosen. As part of the preparations for HS2’s phase one, an archaeological team has been excavating this burial ground. 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 from this fascinating dig right in the city centre.
Warning – Human remains will be shown, may cause upset.
