Old St Helen's Church Ore: update

As the excavation reaches its final week, we have made some exciting discoveries. Numerous brick vaulted tombs were inserted into the church during the 18th century, in addition to the Murray family tomb. There may also be some tombs dating to the 16th century under the central aisle. Two small furnaces or kilns were also uncovered, and may be lime kilns used to prepare lime mortar for repairing the church walls. We have arranged for these to be archaeomagnetically dated by the Museum of London. A number of possible Medieval floor tiles have also been found and are currently being conserved.
