What Lies Below the Crossbones Graveyard at Cross Bones Graveyard

Lucy Coleman Talbot leads a tour exploring the rich social history of Crossbones Graveyard through the physical landscape, by looking for traces of the past and examining contemporary objects and offerings that hide in amongst the soil, plants, and cracked concrete.

From the mythic to the documented, What Lies Below The Crossbones Graveyard will consider historical and archaeological sources to demonstrate the social, cultural, and spiritual importance of preserving this unique patch of London ground.

Proceeds from this tour will be donated to Bankside Open Spaces Trust to help with maintaining the Crossbones Garden.
