Sunderland Antiquarians have been on site this morning and have posted to their Facebook Page:
“Well, the big dig starts today. The archaeologists are just making access to the dig site a little safer, with ladders etc., If you come along – park near the Golden Lion and walk seawards for 100 yards. Work proper should start tomorrow, so if you are confident in the sleck and want to help clean off the stones, fetch your scraper.
Jude (That’s her with the clip board) will be taking names of volunteers and passing out the Health and Safety info. Keep your fingers crossed for great discoveries.”
