Discover London's History by Excavating at Tower Beach
Budding archaeologists and historians are welcome to visit Tower Beach on 27 and 28 July when the City of London Archaeological Society (COLAS) and Thames Discovery Programme will be celebrating 'Fun on the Foreshore'. There will be two days of free activities by the Tower of London as well as a rare opportunity to spend two hours of each day excavating the riverside accompanied by archaeologists and environmentalists, who will be available to identify discoveries and answer questions. Digging is strictly prohibited, and only surface level finds will be allowed. Anything significant will have to be recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme.

Other activities taking place between the Tower Moat and the river wall will include stands laid on by COLAS with museum-quality artefacts and activities and games. These all reflect London's history and will encompass bones, burials, shoes, coins, exploring a spoil heap and dressing up as a Roman Londoner. What a way to introduce your children to history whilst making it fun at the same time.
