Archaeology and history walks upcoming!

These are the walks I am doing for London Walks for the forthcoming winter season:

Sat 10.45 4th Nov 2017
The Archaeology & History of the Bankside - from London Bridge to the Globe  - London Bridge  Tooley Street Entrance

A walk  looking at the Archaeology and History of Southwark and the Bankside.  This area, to the South of London Bridge, has more prehistoric remains that the City of London and a set of important Roman buildings that suggest it was more than just a suburb of Roman London.  On the walk we look at the origins and history of London's most famous Bridge, and its importance for the development of London's most famous suburb.  The walk will explore the Roman settlement, its decline in the so-called 'Dark Ages' and its reappearance in the 9th Century as a new Bridge was erected.  We investigate the area in and around Southwark Cathedral. The walk ends  looking at the archaeology of Shakespeare's Stage.
