Following some extended stays in London, we at Archaeology Travel are currently preparing our London Travel Guide for Archaeology & History Buffs. As with our other city guides, we will be including some valuable tips and suggestions to help save visitors money and time during their stays in this remarkable capital city. Besides a great collection of museums and art galleries with objects and artefacts from all corners of the world, London also has a past of its own that extends back many thousands of years.
Our guide will be building on our existing range of articles that have already proved to be quite popular. Start, in a temporal sense, with the prehistory of London, then take a walk along the path of the Roman and Medieval Wall. London is well known for its important palaces, castles and houses; from Buckingham Palace to Apsley House – once the home of the Duke of Wellington. But do not overlook the lessor known houses that have equally fascinating stories to add to London’s history, Sutton House in Hackney is a good example. And, there are many opportunities to explore archaeological and historical sites on easily accessible day trips from London, Epping Forest and the Medway Megaliths in Kent being two examples.
