For those of you who haven't seen this weeks RW, there is an interesting
query from Jon Sygrave, a Museum of London Archeologist. Apparently
excavations in Aldgate have revealed a late 14th/early 15th century
bellfoundry, quite likely the precursor of Whitechapel. He requests
anyone knowledgeable about bellfounding in this area to provide
information. Particularly, he asks what heppened to George Elphick's
papers, as Elphick had researched the early history of bellfounding in
the area.

Can anyone provide any information?
