Palaeo-London. Thinking About The Ice Age Archaeology and Environments of the Capital

Annual joint lecture with LAMAS: online & in person
Dr Matt Pope (UCL)

From the first recorded discovery of a Palaeolithic tool through to the professional commercial excavations taking place in the city in recent years, we’ll consider how the London landscape was shaped by ice and water, and the early human populations who adapted, or not, to the dramatic cycles of climate change evidenced in the gravels and clays of the city’s deep past.
