Rare finds unearthed in city dig

A 13th Century well house and the stock of a wartime chemist's shop are among artefacts unearthed as part of an archaeological dig in Southampton.

The discoveries were made during a seven-month excavation at the French Quarter site in the city centre.

The dig has been carried out as part of plans to redevelop the area into flats, shops and offices.
