A medieval skeleton wearing a pair of thigh-high leather boots has been found during excavations for London’s new sewer.
The skeleton was discovered face down in mud at the Chambers Wharf site in Bermondsey during work to create the Thames Tideway Tunnel.
Archaeologists believe the man may have died during the late 15th Century while carrying out work near the river.
