Walk by Leading Thames Archaeologist Dr Fiona Haughey.
Where can you find a Bronze Age human skull, a Neolithic alder wood beater, or a Anglo Saxon fish trap? All these items have been found on the foreshore at Chelsea. The skull is known as ‘Chelsea Man’ and shows the earliest evidence for surgery in London with the operation taking place some 4,000 years ago. The Neolithic beater, which is now on display at the Museum of London, has been radiocarbon dated to 3530-3340 BC.
Come and join us for this rare opportunity to gain access to the foreshore and to hear more about our fascinating local heritage. Dr Fiona Haughey who is a leading Thames Archaeologist, will take us along the shoreline and point out over 5000 years of history beneath your feet.
