About the Author

The authors worked together as archaeologists at the Museum of London where they participated in a series of excavations that helped fundamentally change our view of the history of London. Determined to share these discoveries with a wider public they then formed Citisights of London, where they organized a highly praised series of lectures, walks, tours and conferences on the history and archaeology of London. Subsequently, they turned their attention to running one of London's most intriguing historic interiors—the Old Operating Theatre, Museum and Herb Garret and writing on multimedia projects.
