The team on site are a really friendly and enthusiastic bunch, eager to explain what you can see.
Amazingly the stones of the south west tower were just a few inches under the tarmac, which is apparently going to require a redesign of bits of the ground floor of the new development. Rather than backfilling everything as originally planned, there may be glass floors in some areas to see the ruins, rather like in Southwark Cathedral's Millennium building.
the two open days this weekend were fantastic, it's a great opportunity to see something truly unique. the archeologists were briliant, their passion and knowledge shining through, patiently explaining again and again the history of the site and the plans for the development. i was filming saturday and sunday, interviewing them and getting other stories from people who attended. i will be posting some clips onto my website (please be patient - it will take me a couple of weeks to organise) as part of my project on Bermondsey Antiques Market. once posted i will let you all know, (if you couldn't make it to the dig). if you can make it, YOU HAVE TO GO!!
