Work is due to re-start on building a JD Wetherspoon pub in Gorleston tomorrow after construction was halted when workmen discovered a crypt on the site.
Contractors are due to start using lighter machinery under the supervision of archaeologists at the site off the High Street that will become The William Adams pub.
When clearing the site earlier this month the crypt, which contains at least two bodies, was found.
It is believed to be connected to a former Methodist chapel on the site, which had last been home to GT Motors.
Tomorrow will see the start of exploratory work after today was spent preparing for the re-start.

The pub is due to open in October and is named after a 19th century bathing attendant.
