Running through the heart of London is a mighty river: the Thames. It has played a central role in the history of the city, and when the tide is low, the capital’s longest archaeological site is revealed. Join us to explore 10,000 years of London’s dynamic history......

Use the TDP website to explore the archaeology and history of London’s river, and find out how you can get down onto the foreshore and make your own discoveries.
