    Digging for history with Mercian Archaeological Services

    History has always interested me, not just when I was at school, but since I left as well. I can’t claim to be the most knowledgeable on the subject, but certain periods have always fascinated me and the thought that we still find artifacts buried deep underground from hundreds and even thousands of years ago really does send a shiver down my spine.
