One of Sydney’s oldest streets uncovered

Archaeologists in Australia have uncovered one of Sydney’s oldest streets.

“Early records indicate that when the First Fleet arrived in 1788, this was the track that they walked up, because it was one of the only places that you could come ashore at Sydney Cove at the time,” Dr Johnson said.

The road is thought to have been built in 1860. “We just assumed that it had all been quarried away when the building was expanded, but they covered it over instead … They didn’t have bulldozers to remove everything.”
