The Archaeology & History of Southwark

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

First of two walks this weekend led by Kevin Flude and Dougie Killock.

Saturday's itinerary will begin with the prehistoric origins which make it the most interesting area of London at this period of history, and then trace the origins and development of the Roman City on small islands in the Thames, and the mystery of what happened to the area during the so-called Dark Ages. The walk will also conclude with the excavations of the remains of the Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre.

Kevin Flude is a former Museum of London archaeologist who is now the director of the Old Operating Theatre Museum & Herb Garret. He has enjoyed leading guided walks since the late 1970s.

Dougie Killock began his archaeological career as a volunteer on the excavations of Bermondsey Abbey and has since worked as a professional archaeologist on the Abbey, nearby Pope’s mansion, and in Southwark at Ewer Street, the Roman religious complex at Tabard Square and cemetery at Trinity Street, amongst other sites.
