ARCHAEOLOGISTS from the Queen’s University are encouraging members of the public to get involved in a dig to uncover evidence of Londonderry’s development as far back as the medieval period or beyond.
For three weeks they’ll be excavating a DRD owned car park adjacent to the City Walls and St Augustine’s Church.
According to Derry City Council: “It is an ambitious undertaking as only one other archaeological dig in the City has discovered remains which can be definitively dated to the pre-plantation period.
“Whatever is found, it is hoped that local people can get involved in their heritage and enjoy being a part of the dig team or just dropping in to take a look and to see how it is progressing.”
