On the 8 and 9 of September 2016 MOLA’s Time Truck rolls into Bishop’s Square, Tower Hamlets. The local community are invited to jump on board in the afternoon to explore the archaeology that has been uncovered under their local streets.

The Time Truck – archaeology on wheels – is showcasing a fascinating collection of artefacts discovered during excavations undertaken by MOLA for Tune Hotel, Liverpool Street.

The objects, including tea sets, table wares, clay tobacco pipes, and blacking bottles for shoe polishing, shed light on the personal lives and trends of the residents, of this now fashionable district of London, during the 18th and 19th centuries. The objects are being displayed alongside historic images, maps and photographs that bring to life the wider story of the development of Spitalfields since the 16th century.

As well as generously supporting the public and school programme at Bishop’s Square, Tune Hotels are offering anyone visiting the Time Truck a 15% discount on rates at their Liverpool Street hotel, on Folgate Street, when they use the code “TCCMOLA”.
