Winners of Crossrail archaeology competition announced

By Juliet Whitcombe

Winners of Crossrail archaeology competition announced

Our month long exhibition to display the project’s key archaeology discoveries was visited by over 2,500 people during October. It marked the half-way point of our archaeology programme and we expect more to be uncovered in the coming years.  All exhibits have been returned to our archaeology contractors for preservation.

Following a fantastic response to the archaeology competition run throughout October, we are pleased to announce the winners.  

Twelve-year-old Ross Fergusson from Teddington won first prize by correctly answering questions about the items on display. Ross will soon be enjoying a Young Friends Membership package from the British Museum Friends. Ross will receive a year’s Membership plus two tickets to a Young Friends’ event for himself and a guest, and two tickets to a sleepover at the British Museum.

Marcus Rowland from Westbourne Park won an annual family membership to five Historic Royal Palaces including Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace.

The prizes were donated by Systra.

Visitor centre revamped

The Tottenham Court Road Visitor Information Centre has been revamped to display further information about the new railway and its many benefits. A new tunnelling feature has been incorporated into the space to further explain how we are building the 42km of tunnels under London.

The centre, located at 16-18 St Giles High Street, WC2H 8LN, is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11am to 7pm.
