Archaeologist, Parry Kostoglou, of TASARC, talks with Ryk Goddard of 936 ABC Hobart about the findings uncovered so far. New discoveries include foundations of a cottage and a fence post believed to be from a picket fence pre-dating 1820 which had not been previously realised. Pockets of original landscape dating back to 1804 are also adding to the overall story that is gradually being revealed.

The archaeologists have also unearthed an East India coin from the Dolphin Hotel dated 1803, and various bottles including salad oil ceramic bottles, case gin and a rum bottle all from the mid-1800s.
