    to have been dug

    what tense is used in this sentence? Northern France is filled with souterraines, many believed to have been dug in Medieval times.

    I think that to have been is present perfect but "to have been dug"?

    Re: to have been dug

    *** NOT A TEACHER ***


    To me, that's a passive perfect infinitive.
