London’s spine-chilling history is being brought to life with the launch of Grim London – an interactive map that allows you to explore the dark underbelly of the UK capital’s past.
With a history that stretches back over hundreds of years, it’s perhaps inevitable that a city like London has developed a darker legacy along the way. Now the past meets the present in a new piece of data visualisation in the form of an interactive map developed by the London-based digital agency, Impero.
Documenting ghost stories, murder, plague pits and burnt witches, the Grim London digital map takes you on a tour of the capital’s ghastly past. Even if you’re not a resident – there’s a lot to look at for anyone into the darker side of history.
