We will reveal over 10,000 years of British history.
Before we build bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations, the largest archaeology programme ever undertaken in the UK is taking place along the line of route.
Festival of Archaeology
We're taking part in the Festival of Archaeology, the UK's biggest annual celebration of archaeology. Join our events to learn more about Europe's biggest dig. Our events will allow people to understand their history and see archaeologists at work.
Stay up to date
Designed for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home our free, online series will take you on a virtual tour of the route. Our team of archaeologists will reveal some of the stories that have been uncovered so far through footage and new imagery captured during archaeological excavations.
