Museum of London Docklands - Roman Dead is now open

Now open until 28 October, Museum of London Docklands

In 2017, a Roman sarcophagus was found beneath London, only the third of its kind. See this historic archaeological find, along with over 250 ancient Roman artefacts, at our latest major exhibition, Roman Dead.

Join us at the Museum of London Docklands and examine what these extraordinary items reveal about Roman London, its relationship with death and the city's diverse past.

Self-guided visits can be enhanced with a free audio highlights tour from our curators, accessed exclusively via museum Wi-Fi.
Roman Dead events
Join museum curators and academic experts in a season of talks, tours and workshops. Examine the history of the Roman Dead, but also the modern practices and implications around these discoveries.

Don't let the skulls fool you, we also have plenty of Roman Dead events for all the family to enjoy. Our series of family events take place throughout the exhibition but we have an excellent collection of workshops in the May and October half terms, as well as the Styx, Stones and Bones summer shows.
