Annual Lecture announced

All are welcome to the annual London Archaeologist lecture, to be held on Thursday 15th May. Sadie Watson, Site Director for the astonishingly rich Bloomberg site in the City will be describing the very latest findings from the post excavation analysis and updating news on the exhibition space currently being built to interpret the site history and archaeology. With discoveries ranging from original foundations of the famed Mithraic temple to streets of urban villas, mills and remains of medieval St Stephen's church, this is one of the most important sites to be excavated in the City in decades.
