LAARC-ing Around - Our visit to the London Archaeological Archives and Research Centre

Jack's Review

Saturday was an amazing day. We visited LAARC (London Archaeological Archives and Research Centre) as well as going to the Museum of London.
First we had a tour of LAARC by two very enthusiastic guides. This consisted of visit to the artefact stores where in ‘filing cabinets’ thousands (if not millions!) of artefacts from 1972 to the present day. We could not go round all of the archive though as it is the largest archives in Europe!
After this visit we went to the Museum of London. In there we looked around the most of the main museum (not forgetting the shop!). my favourite part was definitely the Roman section  - sadly this is being taken away soon.
