As part of the excavation of a Crossrail site near Liverpool Street Station, a team of archaeologists moved in to find a huge amount of London history. A burial ground, Roman road and over 1000 artefacts spanning 2000 years has been dug up. This includes pottery, weapons and even a tiny golden phallus which would have been worn as a brooch to ward of evil spirits.
