Excavate London: Syon Park
Syon Park, Hounslow
This summer the Museum of London is returning to Syon Park for a second season of field excavation. We will explore how the Roman road and settlement at Brentford has shaped the landscape, and its impact right up to the present day.
Last year we looked for Sir Richard Wynne’s house (‘Little Syon’) and our star find was the cellar under the house, complete with stairs and brick floor. Find out more about the 2012 season on our blog. This year, there are more ways than ever to be part of the project, including:
