Excavating Somers Town Goods Yard
Earlier this year, MOLA carried out an archaeological excavation prior to the construction of The Francis Crick Institute on a site close to St Pancras Station and the British Library. In the 19th century, the site had been a major distribution hub for fresh produce coming into London - the Somers Town Goods Yard.
Please see previous blog for more information about the site.
The Wellcome Trust, one of the founders of The Francis Crick Institute, has produced a short film about the excavation. MOLA Assistant Contract Manager Louise Davies talks about the discoveries from the site, which shed a fascinating light on the area's changing history. To watch the film, click here.
