Experts praise big City dig

An archaeological dig in the City of London that has unearthed thousands of Roman artefacts was hailed as “the most important excavation ever held in London” today.

Just yards from the Thames, in what is now the capital’s financial district, Museum of London archaeologists have found coins, pottery, shoes, lucky charms and an amber gladiator amulet which date back almost 2,000 years.

Experts excavating the site, which lies alongside a huge building project for new offices on Queen Victoria Street, have also uncovered wooden structures from about 40 AD around 40ft (12m) beneath the ground.
