The Archaeology of Curzon Street, Birmingham

Information event

Event date
Bull Street, Birmingham B4 6AF, UK
West Midlands

Join us for this talk about our finds from our archaeological work at Curzon Street and have your questions answered by our experts.

High Speed Two (HS2) is the new high speed railway for Britain.

Before we build bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations, the largest archaeology programme ever undertaken in the UK s taking place along the line of route.

Archaeological works along the route of HS2 have added significant new discoveries to enhance our understanding of the archaeology and history of the earliest railway station in Birmingham; Curzon Street.

Jon Millward from the heritage team at HS2 Ltd, will tell you about the work and finds from Curzon Street.

This talk will explore exciting discoveries from Curzon Street and discuss the rapid evolution and obsolescence of Birmingham’s first central railway station. It will also explore how elements of the historic railway are being reinvigorated and refurbished so they can be safeguarded for future generations and take pride of place as part of the new Curzon Street Station complex.

No prior knowledge of Archaeology, or the Curzon Street site is needed to participate in this event.
