Explore the archaeology of Whitechapel at our pop-up exhibition on Friday February 9th, from 11am to 4.30pm.
Join us at Hampton by Hilton London City Hotel to see a display of artefacts found during our excavations which took place as part of the hotel’s development.
Archaeology was discovered dating from the Roman period, when the site was located close to the main road to Colchester, through to the late 19th century. In particular the excavation recorded alleyways, houses, workshops and yards showing the development of this area during the Tudor period. The finds recovered included high status imported ceramics and artefacts associated local manufacturing notably glass-making, sugar production and bell founding.
