Did you know that one of the biggest archaeological digs in the UK has been taking place in Birmingham? A team of MOLA Headland archaeologists excavated the Park Street burial ground, close to Birmingham city centre. In this webinar you’ll be able to hear about what we 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.

High Speed Two (HS2) is the new high speed railway for Britain. Before bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations are built, the largest archaeology programme ever undertaken in the UK is taking place along the line of route.

The HS2 archaeology programme is continuing to unearth discoveries. To share information about these works and some of the exciting finds uncovered, HS2 is running a series of online archaeology events to support Heritage Open Days 2020.
