Gloucester's Greyfriars dig uncovers medieval floor

The ancient cloisters of Greyfriars Priory and the remains of a medieval tiled floor have been uncovered during an archaeological dig in Gloucester.

The excavation was carried out by a small group of amateur diggers who were supervised by Cotswold Archaeology.

Chief executive Neil Holbrook said: "We knew the cloisters existed but no-one has ever seen them before."

All the findings, such as pottery, will be recorded and then exhibited at Gloucester Museum later in the year.
