Check out a Lidl bit of ancient history beneath city supermarket

The remains of an 11th-century medieval structure is the centrepiece of Lidl's newest Dublin supermarket on Aungier Street.
The supermarket features several significant archaeological finds that can be seen throughout the shop, including the 18th century Aungier Theatre staircase, an 11th century sunken-floored structure and the 18th century Longford Street Arches.
Covered by a rectangle of glass flooring, the most impressive feature is the medieval remains of the humble abode.
