On Tuesday 30 January Rosita Greco, senior archaeologist at the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA), will give an online public talk about what the MOLA team found on the Oriel site.
The archaeological dig was part of Oriel’s planning permission granted by Camden Council in 2022.
Everyone is invited to hear how Rosita and the MOLA archaeology team uncovered the site’s history during and after their excavation. The talk will provide insights into the life of impoverished people in Camden during the 19th and 20th century.
Date: Tuesday 30 January
The talk will be online via Zoom.
After recording and removing the St Pancras Hospital foundations, MOLA uncovered the remains of an early 19th-century workhouse. The unusually well-preserved archaeology and the presence of different phases and modifications allowed the MOLA team to explore how the site was transformed and adapted over time.
