Bodies under streets and wheels in the air

Thought these two recent announcements might be worth sharing.

Firstly, the Museum of London and the Times news have worked together to create a map showing places in central London where there are skeletons still buried.

Its a fascinating map and you can zoom into certain areas. No signs of any body parts, though the article claims that some of the bones will be put on display soon as part of the Wellcome Collection.

Not sure if that is the same collection that resides in the Science Museum, but the exhibition opens in late July and runs until September.

Another recent announcement is the opening of the big ferris wheel in Greenwich.

Unfortunately its only open over the summer, and unfortunately like the London Eye, its not free. However, apparently its been put up to provide tourists with something to do while the Cutty Sark is being renovated.

A couple of ideas for things to do over the summer, then……
