Crypts, Caves and Tunnels of London by Ian Marchant


Crypts, Caves and Tunnels of London by Ian Marchant

What goes on under London? 2,000 years' worth of history. Who have the crypts of the city harboured and what can you find in the Chiselhurst Caves? Learn about Marc Brunel, who built the first tunnel under the Thames with the help of his more famous son, Isambard, and the man who built the first sewer, Joseph Bazalgette. Discover how people have used the world under London, and how you can go looking for it--under your feet.
