Tunnel: the archaeology of CrossrailCrossrail, which has seen 26 miles of new tunnels created under London, has also revealed previously inaccessible areas of subterranean London; an archaeologist's dream. The discoveries resulting from churning up the ground rock of our city go on display at the Museum of London Docklands from February 2017. Among the significant finds are prehistoric flints, showing Mesolithic tool making 8,000 years ago, a Tudor bowling ball, Roman horse shoes and human remains found near Liverpool Street Station. Through these fascinating finds - including one skeleton from the 17th century Bedlam cemetery who died from the Plague - we can explore 8,000 years of human history.

 

About Museum of London Docklands

In keeping with its waterside location, the Museum of London Docklands focuses on the history of the East End with particular emphasis on the River Thames and the lives that have ebbed and flowed with it. The building in which the museum is housed is pertinent, too. More about Museum of London Docklands
