R is for Roman: a listicle of our publications through time

MOLA team

We’re celebrating three ages of London archaeology with offers on some of our favourite books. We’ve published on a wide range of topics for nearly 20 years, from artefacts and fieldwork methods to osteoarchaeology and the historic landscape. For the next few weeks we are celebrating our extensive publication programme with a few offers on our books, inspired by three ages of London archaeology: Roman, Medieval, and post-medieval. This week we’re taking inspiration from London’s unique Roman history.

R is for the Romans (of course), who first settled in the city in AD 47(ish). Read about the burial practices at the Romano-British cemetery on Watling Street.

O is for the Outstanding archaeology of London’s Roman waterfront, where artefacts and remains are preserved in the gooey mud.

M is for the Markets - a mainstay of life in the capital, dating back to the Romans who loved a spot of shopping, at 168 Fenchurch Street for example.

A is for Artefacts. We can’t get enough of them. Like the exceptional wall plaster found on the Southwark waterfront, showing off the Romans’ skills in interior design.

N is for the New. We’re always coming across new information in our digs, like the evidence of Londinium’s boundary discovered at Baltic House, along with a Roman skeleton.

S is for the Second World War. The rebuilding work after the War uncovered tonnes of previously unknown archaeology, like Cripplegate Fort which revolutionised our understanding of Roman London.

You can read about all of these projects and books on our Publications pages. Just follow the links!
