Mr Schofield said a host of stories were attached to the traffic island including that it is the site of a bombed WWII building; that it was once a “Speaker’s Corner”; and that it was “where pirates were hanged”.
He added: “It doesn’t matter whether these stories of Turbo Island are true – we are more interested by how many people were keen to tell us its history.
“Places that matter to homeless people and those who have a marginalised existence in society are significant in their own right.”
Ms Kiddey added: “Using conventional archaeological methods to understand modern culture is both fascinating and socially relevant.”
