300 year old stone heads inspire art exhibition

Hidden away for more than 300 years, a series of stone heads made for the Painted Hall Greenwich have been unearthed and put on show for a new exhibition.

Carved in Stepney in the early 1700s, the stones were abandoned, after the hall was completed with brick instead.

The heads were then placed in the basement of the old Royal palace, until now.
