Abstract:
The volume reports on the results of archaeological work on the site of the London Millennium Bridge, where excavations on the banks of the Thames revealed medieval waterfronts and associated structures. Revetments associated with land reclamation were built on both banks of the River Thames from the twelfth century onward, and on the City side nearly 15m of land was won from the river during the thirteenth century. In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries masonry river walls were built to the south of a narrow inlet, extending the riverside properties a further 10m into the Thames and creating large docks. Eventually the docks silted up and the inlet was in-filled. Buildings on the City side revealed evidence of post-Great Fire industrial activity. The finds included fine medieval metalwork, leather, and pottery, notably a unique group of imported fourteenth-century pottery in the Archaic Maiolica style. Excavations on the Southwark bank revealed a similar series of waterfronts, including a twelfth-century jetty. Post-medieval revetments and the brick wall of an eighteenth-century waterfront were also recorded, along with a remarkable sequence of timber and brick drains. The finds included rare fragments of two river vessels, known as western barges, a collection of post-medieval pottery and well-preserved metalwork. Includes reports on foreshore surveys, GPR surveys, analysis of ship timbers from the south bank excavation, and detailed discussion of the pottery and geoarchaeology. Also includes French and German summaries.
