THE Hive will be going back in time this October when the Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service hosts an archaeological tour of the site.

On Saturday, October 27, between noon and 1pm, the walking tour will allow residents of all ages to discover how the site has changed over time, from a Roman street to Civil War defences and then Victorian cattle market.

Whilst taking in the history of the site, there is also an opportunity on the tour to see and handle finds from excavations carried out before the Hive was built.

Archaeologist Nina O'Hare said: "The Hive lies over a fascinating variety of archaeological sites, which we were able to excavate in 2008-9 before the building work took place.

"Whether you followed the dig at the time or not, this tour is a great chance to discover how the site changed over time and to see some of the objects people made and used here centuries ago."

Tickets cost £5 and places on the tour can be booked at, or 01905 766352.
