Introduction

Although there are many other sites and blogs that cover the topic of Roman London, most feature the more commonly visited and publicly accessible locations.  Having worked in the City for many years, I have been able to gain access to many other remnants of Roman London which are usually hidden from the public view: those which are located in private buildings throughout the City.

My intention with this section of my blog was to personally visit and record every location still having physical remains of the Roman occupation within the City of London. With the aim to provide a single point of reference to all things Roman that remain of the former Londinium.

As a further introduction to this subject please refer to the sub-pages listed below, or use the links in Roman London site menu above.
