Craig’ London blog> Craig’s Museum of London Docklands review  I’ve written a review and posted some photos on my blog

The Crossrail project has been a bit of a boon for London's archaeologists, allowing them to unearth objects spanning the last 8,000 years of human history.

The Museum of London Docklands will be showcasing some of the best objects in this new exhibition, alongside the story of how this complicated feat of engineering was achieved.

Since work began in 2009 over 10,000 artefacts have been uncovered, shining a light on practically every important period of the city's history. Beginning in the Mesolithic period, through Roman London, and right up to the present day, they've found everything from stone tools, tiles and jewellery, to the bones of people killed by the Great Plague.
