Join this archaeological walk with Dr Fiona Haughey exploring London's illustrious shipbuilding past through to site of a possible ancient murder.

Explore the site of a shipbuilding and boat repair yard and a bustling wharf-side industry as well as examining timber from vessels over 200 years old. Come and see where there is evidence of human activity over 5000 years ago and decide whether a skeleton of the late medieval period found in 2002 was a victim of murder or accidental death.

There is so much to discover and learn along London’s foreshores, so why not join one of our many foreshore walks with leading experts on hand across London!
