HEREFORDSHIRE Council is digging the dirt ahead of a key development in Ledbury.
The Master’s House - site of a £2.9million library and community building - is being searched for remains.
An investigation starts this Monday, and will see archaeologists dig a 20 metre square trench.
The routine work is expected to take a week, while any finds will go on show in the completed building.
Aside: When we moved to an apartment on the edge of an expensive part of Seattle the rear window on my Mustang shattered due to a short in the defroster. So for the first month or so there was a big blue tarp over it. Happily the wheels were still okay so at least I didn't have to put it up on blocks.
