A gilt Roman phallus, one of the objects found at the Crossrail excavations.
This is the site near Liverpool Street. They thought the roman skulls had been washed by the Walbrook from a burial place upstream. Now, it seems, they may have been placed there. They may even be Boudicca's victims.

For more than 1,000 years the site was a grotty, smelly bit of working-class London outside the city walls, a place where no travellers on the Roman road would have wanted to linger. On Thursday, a digger punched through the floor of what was a 19th-century underground lavatory, releasing a pungent reek of marsh gas and Victorian sewage.

Things are progressing apace at Crossrail Station, Canary Wharf in anticipation of the shops opening in May.

The Everyman Cinema has it's first screening on 15th May featuring the new Mad Max. Although, at £19.20 a pop I'll stick to using my Unlimited card at Cineworld WIQ - until there's something I absolutely have to see in glorious 4K.

Taken this afternoon...

A metallic finish instead of concrete on the bit overlooking the water feature to reflect the light would have felt better like they did at the Olympic Park.

On the subject of masts I believe the first ones between Woolwich and Abbey Wood should start appearing in May. Have they bugun to appear north of the river between North Woolwich and Custom House?

Apologies for the quality of these (on my BB) but went down to new Crossrail roof gardens and took the following - very impressive in execution and IMHO is far better than Fenchurch St

Looking very nice, they've over delivered unlike Fenchurch. Looking forward to seeing the retail element open up later on.
