Treasures of Borough Market

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Archaeologists from the Museum of London and Oxford Archaeology will be talking about the works they have been undertaking on behalf of Network Rail in and around the Borough Market area.

The archaeologists will talk about the history of the market area and present a summary of their recent findings.

Some of the finds will be available for viewing.

Archaeological work has been taking place intermittently since 2008 at numerous locations between Redcross Way and London Bridge Station.

The work has examined remains of mainly Roman date, although medieval and later structures have also been investigated.

Recent discoveries at Bedale Street may also cast light on the elusive Saxon settlement of Southwark.

A section of the main Roman road to the first London Bridge was uncovered as well as the remains of numerous buildings of Roman date, including a collapsed wall faced in decorated plaster.

The remains of medieval and later buildings were observed to the rear of The Wheatsheaf above numerous Roman structures.
