The Siege Museum and Lumen Christi College in Londonderry recently embarked on an exciting partnership project looking for archaeological evidence of the Great Siege of 1689.

The project involved digging an exploratory trench in the school grounds and was generously funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  Some students even had the unique opportunity to work alongside staff from the Centre for Archaeological Fieldwork, Queen’s University looking for historic artefacts.
