Museum of London Archaeological Archive

Uncover the past through excavations from across London.

Lives of Londoners

Every time a new skyscraper is built in London, or a new train line tunnelled, we discover more about Londoners' lives throughout the ages.

The collection includes artefacts from these excavations, as well as archaeologist’s records and plans for the Museum of London’s Archaeological Archive.
