'Story of a nation': HS2 archaeological dig begins in UK's biggest excavation
Early discoveries on 150-mile route are Victorian time capsules and prehistoric tools
Archaeologists on the HS2 rail link between London and Birmingham have begun work on the UK’s biggest ever excavation, cutting an “unprecedented” slice through 10,000 years of British history.
The mammoth archaeological project, taking in more than 60 separate digs along the 150-mile route, is the first stage in construction of the controversial rail line ahead of main building works starting next year.
