The Big Dig community open day

posted in: News 0

Saturday 15th June, 10am – 3pm

Lister Steps and the Museum of Liverpool are carrying out an archaeological excavation in the grounds of The Old Library, as part of a restoration project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. They don’t know what they might find but are looking forward to exploring the site around this historic building and improving knowledge of the local area’s heritage.

On Saturday 15th June, 10am – 3pm, the site will be open to visitors who are invited to come and see the dig in action, as well as check out anything we might have found!

There will also be tours of the ground floor of The Old Library – an amazing chance for you to see the internal structure of the building before major restoration work begins. Tours are on a first-come, first served basis and sturdy, closed-toe footwear is essential.  For full details of the open day, please visit–activities/the-big-dig-at-the-old-library-sat-15th-june

Volunteers will be working on-site between 12th -15th June to carry out the excavations – if you’d like to help then please get in touch as we may have some last minute spaces available. No experience needed, all training & equipment will be provided – just a great way to meet new people and learn some unique skills!
