Roman and Saxon London

We will consider the history and archaeology of London, including the political background in Britain and beyond, and London's changing role and importance. We will place the Roman, Saxon and Viking incomers in context - where did they come from and why? We will examine what is known about the buildings, form and rationale of the successive towns of Londinium, Lundenwic and Lundenburh.

This course is taught at the Museum of London and draws on the Museum's unrivalled collection of over 47,000 artefacts from the Roman period, including ceramics, coins, domestic objects, glassware, jewellery, metalwork, religious items and sculptures.

This Short Course can be taken as a stand-alone course or it may be available as part of a Certificate of Higher Education.
