Pop-Up Archaeology

A pop-up exhibition, organised by the Museum of London, featuring Anglo-Saxon and post-medieval objects excavated on the site of St Martin's Courtyard. The excavations are among the most extensive undertaken within what was once the trading port of Lundenwic, and the artefacts on display provide a glimpse of life in Saxon London. Objects dating from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries were also recovered from the site, including a nursery mug depicting a giraffe and the word 'Cameleopard', an alternative name for giraffe that survived into the 1900s. Associated events include Meet the Archaeologists sessions (Apr 21 1-5pm, May 5 2-9pm).
