Abstract:
This is an account of an archaeological project, and of life and death in East London during the 18th and 19th centuries. The project took place at Christ Church, Spitalfields between 1984 and 1989. It centered around the excavation of vaults beneath the church, and analysis of the skeletons and artefacts within them. Almost 1000 skeletons were recovered, of which 387 were of known name and age. They had been buried from 1729 to 1859. The circumstances made the excavation one of the most important ever undertaken.
