Archaeologists discovered a previously unknown cave which is thought to have once been under an old pub in Nottingham, United Kingdom.
The find was made when builders uncovered a hole as they attempted to find a sandstone bed under the site. The hidden space was discovered under a building on Lower Parliament Street which is being developed by Nottingham Trent University and Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies. Archaeologists believe that it was once the cellar of a nineteenth-century pub called The Woodlark.
Nottingham is known for more than 700 man-made caves, many of which date back to the medieval period. Archaeologists have done surveys of a lot of them, but very few have been excavated using modern archaeological methods and techniques. The newly discovered one will be fully recorded and a 3D survey will be carried out.
