Additional opportunities for public to view Leicester’s largest archaeological excavation in over a decade on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May

These tickets have now sold out

Due to huge demand, Leicester archaeologists have announced further opportunities for members of the public to view the largest archaeological excavation in Leicester in over a decade on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May 2017.

A limited number of free tickets will be made available at 8am on Sunday 14 May via Eventbrite.

Over 3,000 visitors have flocked to see the work being carried out by University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS) on the former Stibbe factory site, between Great Central Street and Highcross Street in central Leicester.

The original open days proved so popular it prompted the team to extend the public viewing sessions for an additional five days.

These new dates will be the final chance for people to see the largest Roman mosaic in Leicester found in over 150 years (before it is lifted and conserved), along with Roman buildings, streets, and artefacts.
