'Tunnel: The Archaeology of Crossrail' shines a light on the discoveries made by Crossrail during the construction of the Elizabeth line.
The book's chapters follow the route of the new railway from east to west, using a huge array of photos and drawings to explore topics including:
Prehistoric south-east London, the rebirth of a Victorian engineering marvel at Connaught Tunnel, Thames Iron Works at Canning Town and mammoth bones and amber at Canary Wharf, industry on the river Lea and a moated manor house at Stepney Green, the layer cake of history at Liverpool Street from Roman road to the Bedlam Burial Ground, a14th century plague pit at Charterhouse Square in Farringdon, the development of manufacturing giant Crosse and Blackwell in the West End
...and everything from 70,000 year old Reindeer and Bison to the birth of Brunel's 19th century railway around Paddington and Old Oak Common.
