Annual Lecture and AGM

London Archaeologist's Annual Lecture has become a big fixture in London's archaeological calendar. This year on 11 May Neil Hawkins of Pre-Construct Archaeology reveals for the first time details of an important Roman site in the City. Entitled 'Expect the unexpected: Fenchurch from the first century to the First World War', the lecture gives results of a site that features a Roman road, 1st- to 2nd-century buildings, tessellated floors and exceptional finds. Medieval and later strata also added important evidence for the eastern City. As usual, the lecture follows a wine reception at 6.30pm and a short AGM at 7pm. All are welcome and it's free of charge, but please RSVP via email for the reception for catering purposes.
