Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st March 2010

London’s story is inexorably linked to the River Thames. Whether as a Roman provincial port, seventh-century riverside settlement, or major medieval European city, the Thames has played a significant role in London’s rise to prominence. This weekend will explore the archaeological evidence from London’s waterfront to discuss the range of activities that took place in the Roman, Anglo-Saxon and medieval ‘Port of London’.

The course comprises:

DAY 1: A workshop with leading archaeologists to examine evidence for the Roman, Anglo- Saxon and Medieval Port of London.

DAY 2: Field trip though the historic Port of London, including a foreshore visit.
