Totally new to archaeology or the next Alice Roberts? Want to find out more about archaeology and what real archaeologists do? Aged 8-16 years old?

No problem! Join the HS2 archaeologists online as they cover the basics, meet archaeologists and explore a huge dig at Park Street, a Victorian burial ground in the centre of Birmingham, where archaeologists uncovered 6,500 skeletons from the site!

In this free online session you can share what you already know about archaeology and ask questions as they chat through the different stages of the Park Street dig, including discoveries from the site and what they tell us about life in the Victorian times.
