Thursday 16th May 2019 -- Institute of Archaeology, 31-34 Gordon Square, London WC1
Guy Hunt of L - P : Archaeology and Daniel Jackson of Historic Royal Palaces will be revealing the results of the first two of five phases of works to replace hundreds of metres of electrical cabling within the scheduled monument of Hampton Court. Required to support the future use of the building as a heritage attraction, the ring main replacement project also entails a multitude of archaeological interventions. This rare and challenging opportunity to excavate in and around the buildings is revealing earlier phases of the building -- both expected and unexpected.
