Shoreditch Park community excavation 2006
1 to 6 August 2006
Shoreditch Park is the site of many terraced houses, pubs, workshops, church and shops. It was bombed in the second world war, the site cleared for temporary homes, known as prefabs, and became a park in the early 1970's. When LAARC carried out excacations in 2005 and 2006 the concept of a hidden lost historic landscape captured the imagination of local residents, and there is a pride in the place which is reflected by changes made by Shoreditch Trust to reflect the park's origins.

The project has now come to an end, but has been highly successful in both understanding the history of the park and allowing local residents to get their hands dirty and do some archaeology.
