The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection: a Handbook

The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection project was initiated by English Heritage and was conducted as a collaboration between English Heritage (now Historic England), the Museum of London Specialist Services (now Museum of London Archaeology) and the British Museum. The resulting monograph, Tomber and Dore 1998, The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection: A Handbook, MoLAS Monograph 2, was reprinted in 2002 and is now out of print, but the original text in its entirety, is available online.

The Crossrail Archaeology Series is made up of 10 monographs which present the results of a campaign of archaeological investigations commissioned by Crossrail Ltd during the building of a new railway across London. They document 10,000 years of London history from Mesolithic period to post medieval. They are available to access online through the Archaeology Data Service
