Archaeological dig in Lincs hopes to inspire more youngsters to go to uni

Time Team's Prof. Carenza Lewis chats with schoolchildren

Dozens of schoolchildren from across Lincolnshire are taking part in an archaeological dig in Bardney, working with Prof Carenza Lewis from The University of Lincoln who also features within the well-known TV programme 'Time Team'.

The work is aimed at inspiring more youngsters to go to university as Lincolnshire has a low take up in the county.

The students and their teachers have already found bone, buckles and medieval pottery as part of the dig.

Post-mortem examination into death of Lincolnshire student

A post-mortem examination is to be held to establish the cause of death of a Lincolnshire student in which meningitis may have been a factor.

Craig White, 21, from Boston, was in his third year of a journalism degree at the University of Lincoln when he died on Wednesday.

It is believed doctors told his family that meningitis may have been a factor in his death.

A post-mortem examination is to be carried out today (Monday 17th December).

New science and business park for Lincoln

Lincoln is to get a new science and innovation park thanks to joint plans by the city's university and the Lincolnshire Co-operative. The two organisations are working together on an ambitious development to convert a ten-acre site in the centre of the city which is currently disused.

It is hoped the multi-million pound project on Green Lane near Tritton Road will become a world-class centre for science and technology expertise and will also house the university's proposed new School of Pharmacy which aims to address a shortfall in the number of pharmacists in the area.
