Colonial-era artifacts found in Australia

Colonial-era artifacts have been found during an excavation in a suburb of Sydney.

For the past two months archaeologists have been digging in North Parramatta, the site of former institutional care facilities.

The site was then expanded to include a mental asylum and an orphanage.

Senior archaeologist Rhian Jones said it was one of the first times the area had been explored in this way.
