The Archaeology of London Walk
2.30 pm Oct 31 20 St. Paul’s Tube Exit 2.
Legends said that London was founded in the Bronze Age. Historians wrote about a thriving Celtic City, followed by a Roman City which began with the building of a military Bridge shortly after the Invasion led by the Emperor Claudius in 43 AD. It survived till the Romans left and London suffered a Dark Age until the building of St Pauls cathedral in 604AD. The Saxon City began a continuous history as yet uninterupted.
This traditional story was challenged by archaeologists in the 20th and 21st Century and this walk will investigate their discoveries and visit the sites of Roman Forts/Amphitheatres/Temples/Roads/Houses and burials.
