2,000-Year-Old Documents From Roman-Era London Found In Mud


“Researchers from Museum of London Archaeology uncovered more than 400 wooden tablets during excavations in London’s financial district for the new headquarters of media and data company Bloomberg. So far, 87 have been deciphered, including one addressed ‘in London, to Mogontius’ and dated to A.D. 65-80 – the earliest written reference to the city, which the Romans called Londinium.”
