Very short notice but this is bound to be worth a free visit:

Date: Tuesday 8 April
Time: 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Venue: Library Theatre, Paradise Forum, Birmingham
City Centre

Recent archaeological work carried out during new developments in
Birmingham has revealed remains of all periods of the city’s history.
These include prehistoric pits, Roman settlements, Anglo Saxon landscapes,
medieval buildings and industries, also steam engines and glassworks from
more recent centuries.

“Archaeology in Birmingham: an update on the past” is an illustrated talk
by Archaeologist Dr Mike Hodder at the Library Theatre, Birmingham City
Centre, at 1:00pm on Tuesday 8 April. His talk will concentrate on recent
discoveries. Admission is free and there is no need to book, just turn up
on the day!

Mike said, “Recent archaeological discoveries have revealed a lot to us
about Birmingham’s past. These new finds demonstrate the great variety of
archaeological remains we do have in Birmingham and they have changed some
of our ideas about the city’s history.”
