First edition, one of 100 copies issued with a signed photograph. Archaeology in Reverse was shot using the same plastic camera that Gill used for Hackney Wick (2005). He continued to photograph the area of East London that was to make way for the new buildings that would host the 2012 London Olympic Games, revealing traces and clues of the future developments that would soon redefine the area.
