Crossrail archaeology finds

Archaeological finds, discovered at Crossrail worksites across London, are going on show in a special exhibition.

Medieval human bones and a piece of mammoth jaw bone are among the items on display at the Crossrail Tottenham Court Road Visitor Information Centre.

Large-scale excavations are taking part in several places across the capital, as engineers prepare to bore tunnels under the River Thames for the Crossrail train project.
