Today, HS2 announced their archaeology programme: the largest archaeological project to have ever taken place in the UK.

Over 1,000 archaeologists and other specialists are working across 60 sites along the 150 mile route. Exploring over 10,000 years of Britain’s history the project is an unprecedented research opportunity.

For full information on the HS2 archaeology programme please visit or take a journey through time with this nifty animation exploring the HS2 archaeology project.
