Bison to Bedlam - Crossrail's archaeology story so far...

Crossrail's pop-up Bison to Bedlam archaeology exhibition proved to be a huge success with over 550 people attending in the seven hours that the exhibition was open. The exhibition will be back by popular demand later this year.

The one day exhibition marked the half-way point of our archaeology programme.  It featured almost 100 finds including a skeleton from the infamous Bedlam psychiatric hospital, a silver Roman coin and 55 million year old amber. Talks presented by Crossrail’s archaeology contractors, Museum of London Archaeology and Oxford Archaeology in association with Ramboll, proved to be extremely popular.

The exhibition will be re-run later this year, allowing more Londoners to enjoy the layer cake of history that Crossrail is revealing below the city streets.
