Thousands of artefacts unearthed in archaeological dig
A PROJECT to uncover Gloucester's past is gathering pace.
Thousands of artefacts have now been unearthed as part of Kingsholm: History on Your Doorstep.
They include a piece of stonework believed to have come from an Anglo-Saxon palace, pottery dating from the first century and a piece of human bone.
Many of them have been discovered in the back gardens of people who have volunteered to take part in the historical search.

Archaeological experts were at the city's museum on Saturday to display some of the finds.
Anna Morris, outreach archaeologist for Gloucestershire County Council, is leading the project which began in January and ends in June.
She said: "We have had over 1,000 people involved so far. Anything found in someone's back garden is theirs to keep."
The group will be searching another Kingsholm Square garden on Monday and then doing a major dig from October 19 to 23 at the former Civil Service Playing Field off Escourt Road.
