Open days at Tamworth Assembly Rooms Archaeological Site


It was almost over last week for the archaeological dig being carried out in the car park until heavy rain overnight unearthed some interesting discoveries.

Whilst cleaning up on Wednesday morning Wessex archaeology uncovered pieces of pottery and evidence of a pit; believed to date back to the medieval era. These discoveries have meant further excavation work is to be carried out to delve further into Tamworth’s past.

These discoveries have created lots of excitement in the Arts & Events Team and we are opening up the site to give you an opportunity to see what has been uncovered.

If you would like to visit the site and speak to the archaeologists about their findings there will be two open days: Thursday September 22 and Tuesday September 27, both between 11am and 3pm. No tickets are required for the open days and admission is free.
