They are digging in an old car park opposite the Jerwood Space. You can see the old basements of the houses that used to sit on top. Archaeological service on site.

Does anyone know what this site is going to be?

On a side note, I'd be curious about any digs that the general public can participate in. I notice that the Museum of London has (apparently) been called in for the Potter's Field site and I wouldn't mind watching.

No doubt there's a post about joining archaeology teams and digs (although I couldn't locate anything). Any ideas?

Anyone know whats going on with the building excavation in Union Street (where the mini-buses used to park). Look like they have uncovered the foundations of something interesting, enough for the builders to down tools anyway...

the site is probably ear marked for yet another faceless glass and steel apartment block...

There are at least these two threads here on the site, I wonder if the 2003 planning permissions are still valid?

There are loads of different entries for the same site.
