Archaeology dig aiming to uncover secrets of old garden in Eastbourne
12:20pm Friday 26th July 2013 in News
An archaeological dig is to take place to uncover the secrets of a 16th Century garden.
The Eastbourne Heritage Service is running the community event at Motcombe Gardens in the heart of the Old Town.
They are hoping to find out more about the historic dovecote and surrounding area.
It is thought to have been constructed in the 1500s when both doves and pigeons were an important source of food.
A team of volunteers will have just one week from Monday to find out what they can.
All volunteer places have been snapped up but guests are encouraged to visit the site to discover the finds.
