The remains of Matthew Flinders, a The Royal Navy captain, who led the first expedition around the entire coast of Australia, was found under London's bustling Euston, according to the company, which is developing a major rail project in the region.
Archaeologists made the discovery earlier this month as they exhumed some 40,000 graves at St. James's Cemetery behind the station as they prepared to build the $ 70 billion HS2 high-speed railroad which will connect the British capital with Birmingham.
