The Museum of London’s Archaeological Archive and Research Centre (LAARC) is celebrating its 10th birthday with a series of hands-on events at the Museum of London from January 16 to 23 March 2012.
The centre opened in 2002 with the aim of making London’s archaeology accessible to all.
Its archives store artefacts and records from over 7,500 sites excavated in London, including finds from Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre, the Roman amphitheatre, Nonsuch Palace and Heathrow’s Terminal 5.
The Visitor Inclusion Project is returning to the Museum of London from January and will be encouraging visitors to discover more about London’s archaeological heritage, whilst helping the LAARC to care for the objects in its collections.
Those taking part will meet experts from conservators to osteologists at ‘Archaeology Exposed’ and ‘Hands-On Archaeology’ sessions.
