Reviews

  • "Tindall has an eye for a good line. Her sources are eclectic and illuminating...The Tunnel Through Time is a book to savour. It is subtle, considered and powerfully evocative of London's "changeful" landscape."

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Tindall is a sure-footed, even revelatory guide to the treasures of London that Crossrail has unintentionally brought to our notice."

    Jerry White, Guardian
  • "In this engaging book Gillian Tindall ... a veteran historian with an eye for the macabre, the quirky and the absurd ... deftly weaves together archaeology, social history, politics, myth, religion and philosophy"

    Richard Morrison, The Times
  • "Ms Tindall skilfully blends ancient histories, archaeological findings and contemporary context"

    The Economist
  • "These underground stories remind us that buried spaces are places of protection as well as of the fearfully unknown, of hope and of political resistance, of science as well as of persistently chthonic mythology. There’s always a quirky and sometimes a grisly journey to be had beneath our streets"
