On Saturday 5th January at 10:30am, we will be visiting the London Archaeology Archive, which is part of the Museum of London!
We have visited the archive several times before and if you've never been before, it's an amazing place and not to be missed!
About the archive
Based about 10 minutes from Old Street tube station, the archive which is not open to the public, holds archaeological finds from over 5000 digs in London from the last 100 years. They hold almost 1 million items from digs.
Although its a significant archive, they also clean, process and identify all the finds from current digs in London and we will be able to see how this is done.
The archive is not only the primary source of evidence of early London, but also a resource of international significance. Because of the richness of the items found and the historical importance of London, it continues to make an essential contribution to studies of the Roman empire, prehistoric and medieval Europe.
We are having a 90 minute guided tour of the archive where you will get to see some of the items that have been found from archaeological digs in London, from the early settlers right up to Victorian London.
The tour is limited to 20 people and we will be divided up into 2 groups for a guided tour.
The tour cost is £7 per person. This also includes tea/coffee and biscuits at the end of the tour.
If you can't see us inside the station, please call or text.
Lookout for the group sign:
Look forward to seeing you there!
