The Thames Discovery Programme documents and protects the longest open-air archaeological site in London: the banks of the Thames River, largely open to the public. Many of the exposed archaeological sites are left unrecognized, unprotected and vulnerable to the daily tides and thus require close monitoring. The Museum of London commissioned this short film for their “Archaeology in Action” exhibition in 2010. Here we see how archaeologists and volunteers are working together to preserve and excavate archaeological finds from all across time.
