The remains of Matthew Flinders, a British Royal Navy captain who led the first expedition to sail all over Australia's coast, were found during London's busy Euston station, according to the company developing a major railway project in the area.
Archaeologists made the discovery earlier this month while digging up about 40,000 graves in St. James & # 39; cemetery, behind the train station, in preparation for the construction of the $ 702 billion HS2 high-speed train linking the British capital with Birmingham.
