Event description

Description

Another of Ian's Birmingham walks looks at where Britain's Second City actually began, as a small Saxon settlement.

Instead of looking at canals and modern developemnts, this walk follows some of the fascinating discoveries made over the last 20 years or so during redevelopment, as we try to imagine early Birmingham surrounded by fields, with industry coming once the scene much sooner than most people think. What about some mediaeval foul play? And what were the residents of Edgbaston Street doing in theior back gardens in the sixteenth century?!
