People urged to get involved with archaeological dig in Liverpool
National Museums Liverpool are encouraging people to get involved with their archaeological digging group at their Piermaster's Green community dig site. They're calling for volunteers over 18 and those aged 16-24 for their Emerging Archaeologists group. Their dig began last year on the Piermaster's House but will open two new trenches for the groups to learn from and explore. The project investigates four houses, built in 1852, which stood at Albert Dock, one of which, the Piermaster's House, remains standing. These were homes of dock masters and their families before being damaged during the Liverpool Blitz of World War Two.
The Piermaster’s site, digging is most Tuesdays to Fridays 10am – 3pm from May 17 to July 15 and takes place behind the Piermaster's House at the Royal Albert Dock. These residences were built six years after the opening of the Royal Albert Dock in 1846.
Regional and community archaeology curator Vanessa Oakden said: "Our community excavations are open to over 18s from all backgrounds and abilities. For those who don’t want to dig but would like to find out more we’ll have a finds table set up at the site and our archaeologists and volunteers will be happy to chat about what we’re finding”.

Volunteers from last year's dig said: "It's liberating, like being a child again playing in the dirt." Another said: "I’m realising a life ambition doing this, it’s great."
