PASTS UNEARTHED

Camley Street Natural Park, London, 2007

Alan Dein on the Voices:

For Pasts Unearthed, I have selected extracts from the 300 or so recordings in the collection of the King?s Cross Voices oral history project. It?s been a pleasure to unearth these fascinating memories (sometimes only fleeting moments in a lifetime) of this patch of ?the Cross? as told by several generations of King?s Cross people.

The big question for us all as we witness the massive transformation of the King?s Cross area, is just what will this place be like for us to live, to work, or to visit in a decade or so from now? Whatever the future may bring, I hope that our King?s Cross Voices will always offer us a wonderful education about the past lives and times of this intriguing district of London.

King?s Cross Voices is funded primarily by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and is currently managed by the London Borough of Camden. Although the initial three year life of the project is drawing to a close, the plan is to create another phase of King?s Cross Voices.а
