The most extensive excavation within the City of London for 20 years revealed internationally significant evidence providing a detailed narrative for the early Roman period.
Waterlogged sediments preserved structures perfectly and the assemblage of artefacts is the largest ever recovered from Roman London.
This lecture will outline the discoveries, and show how they can revolutionise our knowledge of life in the Roman town.
Part of the Mondays at One series.
