In 2019 the Museum of Liverpool archaeology team undertook the first excavation of courtyard housing in Liverpool.
This type of low quality, high density-housing was home to around half of Liverpool’s working class people by the mid 19th century. This dig, in an area of the city described as ‘little hell’ in a court case in the 1880s, revealed some surprises about the everyday lives of people in ‘Court 2, Oakes Street’.
Tickets for this talk cost £7. A booking link will be available soon on the museum’s event page.
