Episode Summary

TT Special 14 Londinium, Greater London

Edge of Empire

Time Team followed one of the biggest excavations in the heart of London on a football pitch sized site at Gresham Street, just north of a Roman baths and just south of the amphitheatre and fort .

The excavations yielded a wealth of material that creates a picture of everyday life in Londinium. Two thousand years ago London didn't exist. It was created by the Romans in the first century AD, when they settled in the area now occupied by the City.

The settlement started as a simple bridge over the River Thames, but within 100 years it had become a bustling city with a population of 30,000.
