We are excited to offer you the opportunity to visit a live archaeology site and speak to archaeologists who have been working on the site for years! You will be guided around the remains of a Medieval gatehouse while hearing the latest instalment of the Coleshill Park archaeology story. The tours also offer the chance to see what a live archaeological site looks like – maybe a future career in archaeology awaits you!
The excavations started in 2018 when Wessex Archaeology began investigating the fields around Coleshill Hall in preparation for the route of HS2. By 2021 archaeologists had uncovered Bronze Age burnt mounds, Iron Age and Romano-British settlements, medieval moats, a manor house and even the remains of a formal garden from the Elizabethan period. Wessex Archaeology has returned to the site this year to investigate the remains of a medieval gatehouse next to Coleshill Hall.
Archaeologists will be on hand to showcase their latest findings and chat through their work.
