Archaeology in Action
This display has now closed.
Ever wonder what lies beneath your feet? From the ground to the display case, our new exhibition Archaeology in Action gives you a never-before-seen insight into the objects unearthed by Museum of London Archaeology, what happens to the objects and what the day to day work of archaeologists in London is really like.
Exciting archaeological discoveries are made, and continue to be made every day in London. These contribute to our ever evolving understanding of the capital, how it has changed and continues to be shaped by the past that surrounds it.
Archaeology in Action presents some of these valuable finds for the first time from sites such as the Roman High Street unearthed at number 1 Poultry and the Saxon town of Lundenwic uncovered at Covent Garden. New finds from London sites will also be shown in a changing display starting with Shakespearean playhouses, including The Rose and The Theatre.
The Museum of London Archaeology is a long-standing and highly regarded in-house archaeological team and has unearthed a wealth of archaeological treasures. These finds are cared for in the London Archaeological Archive and Research Centre - Europe’s largest archaeological archive.
Archaeology in Action ran until 15 April 2012.
