If you’ve somehow managed to miss hearing about archaeology occurring as part of the creation of the Elizabeth Line, you must have been avoiding the news for years. This brilliant temporary exhibition highlights the key archaeological sites as well as some of the interesting finds related to the Crossrail project. Opening with a film alongside a wall painted with Crossrail facts, you’re instantly aware of the years of planning, effort and archaeology that have gone into the Cross-rail tunnel.
I have no idea what I really expected from the Foundling Museum. I think it was something along the lines of an Oliver Twist Style workhouse, with a dinner hall of big wooden benches lined with tin bowls (obviously for gruel) and spoons. Maybe there would be a rendition of food glorious food. It’s weird what your brain makes up isn’t it. Basically, my brain was really wrong, it’s nothing like this illusion at all.
