Discovering the Port of Roman London

Dr Gustav Milne


Download the lecture video here

Roman London was founded on the banks of the Thames to take advantage of the tidal river for traffic trade and communications. But precisely where were the bridge and the harbour, and what did they look like?

The remains of Roman vessels had been found at County Hall, in Southwark and at Blackfriars, but no sign of the port itself. Then, from 1973 onwards, in a long series of major archaeological excavations within the City, the ancient harbour was gradually revealed, often where it was least expected.

This event was part of Totally Thames 2017 that ran from 1-30 September & also was part of the City of London's 'Londinuim' that ran from 28th July to 29th October.
