'Hidden history' uncovered on tour





Underneath the streets of Belfast lies a hidden history which archaeologists have been exploring for years.

However, until now, locals and visitors have not had the chance to actively explore the history that lies beneath them.

Since 1983, more than 50 excavations have taken place all over the city, in order to discover information about Belfast's 800 years of history.

Foundations of 17th Century red brick tenements were uncovered in a dig in front of Cotton Court and also under what is now the Potthouse Bar, at the corner of Waring Street and Hill Street.
