This dataset contains the desk study, WSIs, archaeology reports and built heritage reports for work carried out at four worksites for the new Liverpool Street Station area (Liverpool Street, Bloomfield Street, Finsbury Circus and Moorgate).
There are 2,000 years of history buried beneath the site of Crossrail’s Liverpool Street station site, including a Roman road and cemetery, the Lost River Walbrook and Moorfields marsh, the precinct of St Mary Bethlehem medieval priory and hospital, the former Bedlam burial ground (1569-1730) and the foundations of the former Broad Street railway station (1863-1986). The work on these sites was featured in a Channel 4 television documentary in 2015.
