Our tours: What Lies Beneath Part II – the Archaeology of Crossrail

Part two of LEO HEATON’s ‘Archaeology in the City’ series, this virtual tour will escort you down into the tunnels and brand new rail stations of Europe’s largest ever infrastructure project, Crossrail, to have a closer look at the finds unearthed during its construction.

From everyday items, like Victorian chamber pots and Roman coins, to rare treasures such as medieval water pumps and a piece of 55 MILLION year old amber – come and explore the sites and some of the objects that this remarkable project uncovered one by one. Is it true that bodies were discovered still carrying 14th century plague pathogens? What gruesome discovery had to make way for the new Liverpool Street station ticketing hall? And why on earth were 13,000 jam jars buried underneath Tottenham Court Road?!

Join Leo to spend a fascinating hour putting together a few more of the pieces that make up London’s archaeological jigsaw puzzle.
