Let's unearth Wirral's Viking history
11:22am Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in Letters
A VISIT to Meols by a full-sized replica Norse long ship next May, with Norwegian crew, and the building of a memorial to the Wirral Viking Ingimund, means it is surely time for a proper dig to discover exactly what lies beneath the pub car park in that town.
There is, in all probability, the remains of the real thing a few feet below ground.
It would be a fitting contribution to an important event, and frankly for the visitors to be told nobody has attempted to find out what is there would be an embarrassing shame.
