Londinium: a New Map and Guide to Roman London

Sheet map, folded
by Museum of London Archaeology
Over the centuries London’s ground surface has risen inexorably and as a result Roman streets and buildings lie buried up to 7m below the modern street level. This map, created by Museum of London Archaeology, graphically presents our most up-to-date knowledge of a lost world: the Roman city’s topography, plan and appearance, including its roads, waterfronts, public buildings, houses and defences.
