Diggers to uncover Leveller ?

Crossrail-PA-v3If you click here then you will get a lovely article from today’s Independent about Robert Lockyer. It suggests that as Crossrail continues, “archaeologists could be about to unearth the musket-shot-riddled remains of one of Britain’s great left-wing heroes. Executed by firing squad in April 1649, Robert Lockyer was an activist in England’s first democratic political movement, the Levellers. Archaeological excavations due to start early next month at Liverpool Street in central London could locate his final resting place.”
