Beyond the label: digging 'little hell'
No current dates available
In 2019 the Museum of Liverpool archaeology team undertook the first excavation of courtyard housing in Liverpool. This type of low quality, high density-housing was home to around half of Liverpool's working class people by the mid 19th century. This dig, in an area of the city described as 'little hell' in a court case in the 1880s, revealed some surprises about the everyday lives of people in 'Court 2, Oakes Street'.
