Roman Londinium to Saxon Lundenwic

The last Roman Londoner?

A man’s grave 

Roman Londinium to Saxon Lundenwic

The maps of Roman and Saxon London are being redrawn by archaeological treasures from an archaeological dig at the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square.

The finds include a stone sarcophagus containing the skeleton of a middle-aged Roman man, and exquisite Saxon grave goods. Dating from AD 410 to 650, these items offer tantalising clues to a previously hidden period in London’s history.

The finds are on display in the Museum for just two months, from Thursday 24 May to Wednesday 8 August 2007.
