THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

Group of archaeologists and artists have been working at the site

icon japanball15 September ~ Archaeologists have been excavating areas of the Park Avenue ground in Bradford, former home to Bradford Park Avenue. The project, which was funded by the Arts Council England and the National Football Museum, included digging in the areas of the dug outs and one of goalmouths as well as clearing the terrace behind the goal, exposing the concrete steps. Along with the archaeological finds, plenty of artists were present to create works which included casts of the goalpost holes and recreating a photo of a goal during the final match at the stadium. The group kept a blog of their findings, which can be found here.
