About this event

Where practice trenches meet Roman ditches: Roman and wartime archaeology at Royal Liberty School, Havering

Helen Chittock and Les Capon, AOC Archaeology

During 2019, AOC Archaeology undertook excavations at the Royal Liberty School in the London Borough of Havering. This site is home to Hare Hall, a Palladian mansion built in 1769-70, which has housed the school since 1921. Excavations uncovered evidence relating to the parklands and gardens of Hare Hall, in addition to a zig-zag shaped practice trench, dug during the site’s life as a World War I training camp for the Artists Rifles regiment. A programme of Historic Building Recording was also carried out on three structures of World War II date, comprising two civilian shelters and a probable minor defensive fortification. In addition to this more recent evidence, a series of Roman linear features were revealed, adding to understandings of Roman occupation in this part of eastern London. This lecture summarises AOC’s findings at the site, investigating its archaeology and history from the Roman period to the 20th century.
