Archaeology focus week for Crossrail at Stepney Green

Crossrail is planning an archaeology open days at its Stepney Green site on 27 and 28 July but many of the artefacts it hopes to display have yet to be uncovered.

Ninety volunteers will join archaeologists from the Museum of London Archaeology to undertake a community dig at the site from today as part of the UK-wide Festival of Archaeology.

Crossrail hopes that the combined team will unearth more remains related to the 13th Century Worcester Manor House which was previously re-discovered by Crossrail archaeologists during an earlier dig at Stepney.

Archaeologists previously discovered the foundations for King John’s Manor, built between 1450 and 1550, as well as artefacts including shoes and a Tudor bowling ball made from exotic South American wood.

Tours and archaeology presentations of the finds will take place at midday and 4pm at Stepney Green next weekend.
