Building work at Henry VIII's Hampton Court Palace in Surrey has uncovered a haul of artifacts. North London firm Chorus found a previously unrecorded Tudor wall during enabling works for its deal to build a new reception centre and refurbish the Georgian barrack block. An archaeologist unearthed coins, clay pipes, spoons, old cess pits and even preserved Georgian dung after hand digging the area to record the extent of the wall.
