A journey through time: Crossrail in the Lower Thames floodplain (Crossrail Archaeology)

2017

Abstract

The archaeology investigated along Crossrail’s south-east worksites across the Thames floodplain, from Stepney Green to Abbey Wood, tells the story of the lower Thames throughout the Holocene (from c 10,000 years ago to the present). Geoarchaeologists recorded the deep floodplain sediments at six sites along the route, providing the basis for an understanding of the changing landscape of the wider lower Thames area from Erith to Greenwich, Canning Town to Hornchurch, framed as a journey through time. The Crossrail archive is available online.
