09. The Big Dig Archaeological Site

Cross the road at the Crossing, and walk South along Cumberland street, past the Australian Hotel, to the youth hostel. Spend 10 minutes having a look around the archaeological site. Exit to the East.

The Big Dig is an archaeological site that originally contained houses from the 18th century, but was covered over with a large building. In 1994, some people decided to uncover the site and dig it up. Archaeologists have uncovered many artifacts and the walls of the houses. The Sign outside the Eastern side points out a stable that still stands today, (as in the right picture above).
