Uncovering the Medieval manor house in Coleshill: Join the conversation at free online archaeology event

We would like to invite you to join a free webinar focusing on the latest developments and ongoing excavations at Coleshill in Warwickshire on Thursday, 28 January from 11.30am-12.15pm.

Our archaeology programme is continuing to unearth discoveries across our sites. Join us and the team from Wessex Archaeology for this online event to find out about the latest developments on the ongoing excavations at Coleshill, focusing on the Medieval moated manor house and its ornamental Elizabethan gardens.

This is the second instalment of our series on the Coleshill Manor site. The first webinar took place in November 2020 and is available to watch now: HS2 In Focus: Archaeology - Uncovering the Medieval manor house in Coleshill, November 2020 webinar

Our team will chat about some of the new discoveries on site, including artefacts, garden features and building remains and discuss how these new findings are helping us to build a greater picture of the manor house. You will be able to ask the team questions via a live Q&A chat option and pre-submit questions when you register.

We also recommend that you watch our previous webinars on the Coleshill site, so that you are up to date on our work so far:
