Bodies, bodies, everywhere!

Literally: Crossrail archaeology: the story so far

It is one of the most extensive archaeological programmes ever undertaken in the UK.
Crossrail currently operates over 40 worksites and archaeological investigations which will be carried out at each site ahead of main construction works to build the stations.
A project spanning over 100 kilometres with more than 40 construction sites has the potential to uncover many finds.
To date Crossrail has found more than 10,000 artefacts spanning many years of London’s past across more than 40 construction sites. It is the UK’s largest archaeology project.

They’re expecting up to 3,000 burials to remove. Which will provide a tremendous amount of demographic and pathological data. And all of it’s rescue archaeology.
