Our tours: Archaeology in the City of London

LEO HEATON digs into the ancient history of our capital and comes up with gold.

“Leo was fabulous. Extremely knowledgeable and engaging.”

On this virtual walking tour of the City of London, we will peel back the layers and take a look! Over an hour, we will trace the City’s history through its archaeology and examine some of the most exciting and unusual finds. The Roman settlement of the 1st and 2nd century AD offers up amazing remains at every turn: from the ruins of the amphitheatre lying beneath the City’s art gallery, to the sections of the Roman boundary wall revealed by Second World War bomb damage; from Medieval hoards discovered in the foundations of new office blocks, to plague pits under railway stations! The perfect tour for all those interested in what can be found beneath the ground as well as what is currently above it!

“Leo Heaton is an exceptional guide; great sense of humour, well prepared and is someone who can make any topic interesting!”
