Images of the 8 month period are also included. The team of Portsmouth University used data from the National Archives for their Bomb Sight Project. Researcher Kate Jones told the BBC she was surprised London had survived the Blitz.

During the Blitz, some 20000 people lost their live.Some 1.400.000 became homeless.
