Thanks Marty for the link to the article by Jane Mower. London is just like Rome or Athens, everywhere you dig you will find history. Reand and noted.

VERY exciting! It is good that the Brits have a real sense of their past and don't go about carelessly destroying it. {Except that's what they've done in a few instances, at Stonehenge and Tara for example.} {Well, some you win and some you lose.}

As John B wrote- stick a shovel into the ground in London, and you will nearly always find treasure.
