East Anglia is an area rich in archaeology and historical finds with Sutton Hoo in Suffolk or Seahenge at Holme-next-the-Sea in Norfolk.

Hoards of buried treasure were discovered at Hoxne and Snettisham.

Now a new community dig is underway in the grounds of Clare Castle near Sudbury in Suffolk to find out more about the historical site and what went on there hundreds of years ago.

It's part of a £1.5 million Heritage Lottery grant.
