London history over 2000 years

Roman London, the London Wall - as noticed by sewer excavations etc

This is my wiki site about London which will also link to the current pub history site

The best way to find the original London wall in Roman London appears to be through sewer excavations, and similar excavations. These pages are based on a "Royal Commission On Historical Monuments 1834" - actually it is 1928; which is in the public domain. A section (page 83) onwards lists a number of archaeological excavations of the original London wall, and some detail and illustrations.

A mapping of the area is always good, modern day compared to pre-1900 maps from the NLS site
