Thank you for registering for "The Archaeology of HS2: Uncovering Park Street".

A team of archaeologists has excavated the Park Street burial ground, close to the city centre. In this webinar you’ll be able to hear about what they’ve discovered and what it tells us about life and death in Birmingham during the 19th century.

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

Our archaeology programme is continuing to unearth discoveries across our sites. To share information about these works and some of the exciting finds uncovered we are running a series of online archaeology events to support Heritage Open Days 2020.

Uncovering Park Street in Birmingham

The way I read it was that you may get a notification as the event opens. If not you can click to join the Webinar around the allotted time. I presume any computer, laptop or tablet can be used.

The webinar did work to a certain extent. The slides did not appear, and it was said that they would be available to view later, but how to access was not clear.

There was a programme, Britain's Biggest Dig, on BBC2, last night re St James burial ground in London, which was excellent. Next weeks programme will be about archaeological work in Birmingham connected with the building of HS2.
