COVENTRIANS will get the chance to uncover what has been found in a medieval building in Keresley and evidence of the people who lived there over 500 years ago at an open day next month.
A free event will be held at Keresley Community Library between 4pm and 6pm on Wednesday, December 6.
Archaeological work has recently been undertaken by Worcestershire Archaeology on the edge of Keresley Village, where the remains of a probable medieval building have been recorded.
There was also a cobble surface and other archaeological features found in the dig.
The open day will allow people to see what has been found, handle some of the finds and discover what goes on during an archaeological excavation.
Countryside Partnerships and Platform Housing Group are building 260 affordable homes on the site where the finds were made.
Nina O’Hare, from Worcestershire Archaeology’s Outreach Team, said: “This is a great chance for people locally to discover more about, and even hold, the archaeology on their doorstep.
“Most excavations, including this one, happen as part of the planning process, so it’s wonderful to get a chance to share the results with people.
“There’s nothing quite like holding an object that is centuries old, wondering who made it and all the stories it could tell.”
