The depth of stacking was remarkable but the London clay preserved so much of the wood there were details that I hadn't unexpected

V moving indeed.  I found the fashion in coffin styles/shapes interesting too, the coffin plates etc.  All v interesting, tho I flinched at the methods for protecting the bodies from Resurectionists, those really creeped me

Topic description:

Did anyone see any of the progs re Britains Biggest Dig - archeology along the path of HS2 in which they were/are trying to find and move all burials along the route?  Gruesome if you don't like skeletons or the thought of all these disturbances but fascinating history. The one I've watched so far covers a Georgian to Victorian set of burials related to St James's Piccadilly which has/had a burial ground next to Euston Statn.  One piece of burial goods found is a late C18 doll (no arms and legs or fabrics left) and the social history is all v fascinating.  Warning tho this program also covers details re the grave robbers.
