Artefacts uncovered by archaeologists during the 500m revamp of Bristol's Broadmead have gone on show to the public for the first time.

Historians have been sifting through the rubble while the Quakers Friars area of the city centre is demolished to make way for a new shopping centre.

Among the foundations, they have discovered numerous artefacts, including 13th Century floor tiles.

On Saturday members of the public were being shown around the site.

Work on the first phase of the Broadmead redevelopment began in September 2005. It is due to be completed in 2008.
