Do You Know About The Roman Girl Buried Beneath The Gherkin?

We often encourage you to look up in the capital, to avoid missing the incredible sights and views just above our heads. But sometimes it pays to look down instead.

One of London's most iconic skyscrapers, the Gherkin, is one such place. If you do take the time to look, you will realise you are in fact standing on the grave site of a young Roman girl, whose remains were discovered during the building's construction in 1995. A lot has happened since then, so we went to pay her a visit. Why not do the same?
