Map Shows Every London Bomb Of The Blitz

The excellent blog Londonist has a fascinating item today: 

Wow. Simply, wow. Someone’s only gone and mapped every known bomb of the Blitz. contains thousands and thousands of datapoints and shows, on even the most glancing inspection, just what a pummeling our city took all those years ago.  The map is based on archive research, drawing together official bomb censuses for the period between September 1940 and June 1941. It therefore lacks later bombing raids and attacks by flying bombs and rockets later in the war. What is there, however, is an invaluable resource for researchers and anyone with a curiosity about the history of our city.
