Archaeologists excavating the home of a British Army cavalry responsible for the 1819 Peterloo massacre were shocked to uncover several bottles of British beef beverage Bovril from the historic Hulme site.
Hulme Barracks was excavated as part of the Dig Greater Manchester Project by the University of Salford and senior archaeologist Brian Grimsditch uncovered several individual Bovril bottles.
These ‘quirky finds’ were a surprise discovery yet Mr Grimsditch says they will ‘help fill in the blanks’ and allow archaeologists to ‘really see how people lived’.
I only have heard of this beverage from a Top Gear episode. If it’s anything at all like marmite, y’all can keep it.
