HS2 Archaeology in Focus: Free online event highlights excavations at Park Street Burial Grounds

Did you know that one of the biggest archaeological digs in the UK recently took place in Birmingham? Find out more at a free online 'webinar' on February 24.

The archaeological excavation at Park Street undertaken on our behalf by MOLA Headland Infrastructure was the largest investigation of a Victorian graveyard undertaken outside of London. The site presented archaeologists with an unprecedented opportunity to study the population of Birmingham during a period of rapid expansion and change for the city.

Following a presentation delivered in February2019, join representatives from MOLA Headland Infrastructure on Wednesday February 24, 2021 from 11.30am - 12.30pm to learn about the history of the site and updates on some of the recent findings. You will be able to ask the team questions via a live Q&A chat option and pre-submit questions when you register.

Please register and book your tickets now

Please note registration closes 1 hour before each live event starts. We will be publishing video recordings of the session online, so if you are not able to listen live you can still learn about each topic through a dedicated playlist on the HS2 YouTube channel.

If you have a question about HS2 or our works, please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team on 08081 434 434 or email .
