Digs unearth more new history
RICHARD III archaeologist Mathew Morris will be revealing analysis of finds unearthed in community test pits in Market Bosworth during the summer at an event at the town’s Dixie Grammar School on Sunday November 19.
Mr Morris, from the University of Leicester Archaeological Services (Ulas), who was the first person to uncover the remains of the last Plantagenet king in a car park in Leicester, has been processing finds from the volunteer community digs around the town earlier this year.
A display of the finds will be on display between 2pm and 3pm after which Mr Morris will present his feedback.
Gemma Tallis, project officer for the community dig scheme known as Bosworth Links, said: “From a first glimpse, new information has come to light which will tell us more about Market Bosworth’s already rich heritage and history.
“We are very excited about the results indeed.”
The event will also be used to announce dates and details of further planned excavations to be carried out in 2018.
