Roman Settlement Found In West London

A Roman settlement packed with ancient artefacts and human remains has been unearthed on a building site in west London.

Archaeologists excavating the listed site in Syon Park made the discovery of thousands of Roman items just half a metre below the surface.

They were digging on the plot of land ahead of the construction of a new hotel.

Around 11,500 fragments of pottery, 100 coins and jewellery were uncovered by the experts from the Museum of London Archaeology, along with burial sites containing human remains and a Roman road.
