The Chester Amphitheatre Dig has started up again.
The biggest dig in Britain is taking place in Chester's Roman Amphitheatre. Between June and September, our Amphitheatre is being excavated by a team of archaeologists. A partnership project between Chester City Council and English Heritage, the dig will help us understand the development as a city. You can chat to archaeologists in the nearby Chester Visitor Centre as they process finds, tour the site with them and view the exhibition with hands-on activities.
