Tired of London, Tired of Life - One thing a day to do in London

A website about things to do in London

See the treasures of Crossrail

You can't walk around central London at the moment without being aware of it, and Crossrail is holding a special exhibition today to celebrate the half-way point of its archaeology programme, showcasing some of the things they've found in the course of their work.


We are told that, in the course of their rummaging, they've found prehistoric animal bones, Roman artefacts, human remains from the Bedlam psychiatric hospital and bits and bobs from past industry, all of which will be on display in the Music Room at Grays Antiques near Bond Street today.

    It was a damn interesting afternoon, and I'm glad Crossrail were considerate enough to put it on.
