Archaeological Finds at Bath Quays Waterside

Richard Wyatt and the Bath Newseum team has visited the Bath Quays Waterside construction site to record some footage of the excavations.

The film has been published on youtube  and  features an interesting interview with Cai Mason of Wessex Archaeology.  Cai and his team are working hard to record all the findings along the quayside during the building work.

Discoveries include the remains of an Eighteenth century parchment works, uncovering the different areas of the works where the animal skins would have been prepared for printing.

The floodworks scheme is due to be completed during the winter and more information about the scheme itself is available by checking out the Bath Quays Waterside section of the B&NES website.
