Totally amazing - Roman remains from an 1,800 year old temple under the streets of London. Now on public display at Bloomberg HQ #whathavetheromanseverdoneforus #mithraem #romans #underlondon #artefacts
And another set of tunnels
One from last year. Winter is the time to go underground
Under your feet

#Repost @natgeo ・・・ Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio Images taken deep under London whilst on assignment for National Geographic – a peeling back of the city’s skin to explore the hidden histories unearthed by archaeologists working on the Crossrail development. Here, Roman-era skulls photographed 70m below their discovery place in the construction tunnels of Crossrail in what will be the concourse between Moorgate and Liverpool St Stations. The stones jammed in the eye socket would confirm this as possibly the washout from a flooded cemetery. Pitting on the surface of some of the skulls also suggests they were rolled in moving water. The skull on the middle shelf without the pitting was probably rolled whilst still 'fleshed'.

Repost from @natgeo Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio Crossrail is a 118-km (73-mile) railway line under development in and around London. Here Tunnel Boring Machine 'Victoria,' named after Queen Victoria who oversaw the birth of modern railways, breaking through into the eastern end of Liverpool Street Crossrail station. The breakthrough, 40m beneath the City of London, is part of Crossrail’s longest tunnel drive, 8.3km from Limmo Peninsula, near Canning Town, to Farringdon. On completion of Crossrail tunnelling, a total of 42km of rail tunnel will have been bored as part of Europe’s largest infrastructure project.

I first discovered #neilgaiman at college through his #animation collars with #davemckean. Many years later I picked up this book #neverwhere and finished it yesterday during a long trip. It has caused me much #inspiration and now I want to read them all!!! #artisticinspo #travelread #underlondon #imagination 🙏
Under London
Londoners now have a chance to ride a tiny, cramped, train under central London! 😱 If you’re reading this and thinking… But I do that every weekday. Think again. 🤔 Welcome to the Mail Rail! A secret tunnel network that used to carry London’s post 22 hours a day. Read everything you need to know about the new Postal Museum in my bio link @look_uplondon 👈🏼 #lookuplondon . . 📷 @thepostalmuseum (Miles Willis) . . . #mailrail #postalmuseum #underground #underlondon #tunnels #tubehistory #railhistory #royalmail #quirkylondon #londonmuseums #museum
Worth the entrance fee
Movin' too fast Finally got to see a tiny bit of the Mail Rail
So this one has the time of his life this afternoon! If unusual underground railways are also your thing, you will love it too!
