London’s History in Paper.
The history of London is colourful, extensive and ever changing. In the recent work done under London for the Crossrail line a number of important archaeological artefacts were discovered, shedding light on a number of important events in London’s history.
National Geographic were inspired by the discoveries and set out to make a monument to the capital’s past; something spanning the 40,000 year history and capturing a number of critical moments along the way.
The end product is a gorgeous video chronicling London through the ages, but made entirely of paper. You can watch the haunting and beautiful video in its entirety below:

The video has made a number of outlets online and its popularity is growing.
