After the Excavation, at Museum of London

Running through February and March, a series of  drop-in interactive handling sessions with staff and volunteers from the Museum’s Archaeological Archive will be taking place in the museum foyer & Archaeology in Action, from 10.00-16.00.

  • On Mondays you will have the chance to meet Archaeological Conservators and discover the techniques they use to preserve artefacts.
  • On Tuesdays meet volunteers from the Centre for Human Bioarchaeology and find out how they use skeletal remains to understand past Londoner’s lives.
  • On Fridays join the Archivists who will reveal the importance of recording archaeological data and the wealth of information that site archives can reveal.

On each of these days you can also visit the Museum of London foyer where various aspects of our work will be showcased including artefacts, photos, tools of the trade and a chance to find out more about the archaeology of London.
