Victorian rubbish dump unearthed

Rubbish dumped during the Victorian period has been uncovered in Norfolk by a group of archaeologists.

They have excavated a former town rubbish dump and the site of a former incinerator in King's Lynn.

Hundreds of bottles, ash from coal fires and some dangerous metals have been uncovered in the dig.

Inside Out will be broadcast on BBC One in the East of England at 19:30 BST on Monday and available on iPlayer afterwards.
