SITES OF SOCIAL SPECIAL INTEREST (SSSI) NO.1
Bristol Street subway/underpass - Birmingham (UK) / 2008
On going eccentric archaeology in progress.
BACKGROUND TO PROJECT
The idea of this project was to adapt (some would call is ‘appropriate’) the term ‘Sites of Significant Scientific Interest’ into a personal exploration of ‘social significance’. I therefore began a series of accounts in the city of Birmingham (UK) in which is ‘investigated’ Sites of Social Special Interest or SSSI. Herein are some documentation of ‘events’, gatherings and exploration under the SSSI banner. Enjoy.
