The Big Dig is an archaeological site between Cumberland Street and Gloucester Streets, in The Rocks. It contains remains of over 30 homes and shops and 750,000 artefacts from the late 18th century, the time of Australia's first European settlement. Excavations began in 1994 with a team of 20 archaeologists and 400 volunteers. The Sydney Harbour YHA hostel and The Big Dig Archaeology Education Centre were built above the site in 2010. The wire horse sculpture made by Glenn Doyle was installed in 2015 on the remnant paving stones of the stables behind the Whalers Arms Hotel.
