The Walbrook is one of London’s lost rivers, once cutting the city in half from Finsbury Circus to Cannon Street station. It may have acted as a boundary, industrial zone, or even a religious site, but for archaeologists it is an important time capsule. The waterlogged earth of the valley has preserved an exceptional collection of rare metal artefacts that give us a unique glimpse into the working lives of Roman Londoners.

The Roman tools on display represent over 170 years of excavation in London. Most come from the Walbrook valley.

This display was curated by Owen Humphreys as part of a PhD project supervised by the Museum of London and the University of Reading. It is the first large-scale project ever undertaken to understand these important objects.
