Huge popularity means archaeological open days continue until Friday

Posted by rmt22 at May 08, 2017 01:06 PM |
Following a weekend which saw huge interest in the largest archaeological excavation in Leicester for a decade, we have extended open throughout this week.

The site, which is located between Great Central Street and Highcross Street in central Leicester, includes the remains of one of the largest and highest-status Roman mosaic floors ever found in the city, two Roman streets containing a number of buildings and rare evidence of the first Anglo-Saxon migrants to arrive in the city following the demise of Roman Leicester.

Over the weekend we opened the site to the general public and were blown away by the demand, with queues of up to two hours forming, so are offering more opportunities to see this unique site, which uncovers the story of Roman Leicester.

You will be able to visit the site between 12 and 2pm until this Friday 12 May.

More information is available on the ULAS website.
