Wooden quay and warehouse structures excavated at Regis House
In 1998 archaeologists were working at Regis House. They found evidence of
Londinium's first port.
In Roman times the River Thames was much wider than it is today. The Roman
port wasn't where the modern waterfront is. It was further back, where
Pudding Lane is today. People have been building and dumping rubbish into
the Thames ever since, burying the Roman buildings underneath.
