JANE SIDELL has been an archaeologist in London for over twenty years, starting off as a student at the Museum of London where she worked on projects as diverse as the excavation of the medieval cemetery at St Mary Spital, and the prehistoric mud of the Jubilee Line extension. She transferred to English Heritage at the very end of the last millennium, to provide science advice across London, and is currently Inspector of Ancient Monuments for London, trying to preserve and enhance the interpretation of surviving monuments such as the Roman Wall and medieval monasteries. She will speak about The Origins of Roman and AngloSaxon London. This will touch on the development of London from a small town at the edge of the Roman Empire through its development to major city of Londinium. The transition from Roman City to Saxon farmland and then the development of the Anglo-Saxon emporium of Lundenwic shall be outlined to conclude the talk.
