I note today that both Annette Rubery and Kate over at Lichfield Lore have been energised by the archeology currently ongoing prior to the new development starting near The Friary in Lichfield. Both have written interesting articles, and Annette has loads of pictures and information.
If the style looks familiar, Annette is the Lichfield journalist, writer and historian behind the brilliant Beacon Street Blog and @BorisBratby, possibly the most erudite and witty social media using cat ever known.
This is a real chance to find out some great Lichfeldian history, and also gives those who are interested a chance to see how real archeology is done, as opposed to some of the opportunist, ill informed field digging practised by some local historians. These things are better left to those with the knowledge and skill.
