Norton Priory, extensively excavated in the 1970s and 1980s, is now the subject of a long-term collaborative research programme with the University of Liverpool. The students are taking a central role in examining previously under-investigated aspects of the site. They will be keeping a blog on the 2019 excavation of the Norton Priory site. Go to Blog. 

Visitors will be able to see the excavations and talk to the team about what has been discovered on our Dig Open Days on Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th June 2019, 11am – 4pm. Access is via the Museum. Normal admission prices apply.
