Roman Wharf Piling

At the church of St Magnus the Martyr, an actual pile dating from the roman period stands within the porch entry underneath the bell tower.

Part of the old Roman riverside wall, it was discovered at Fish Street Hill in 1931 during the excavation of  foundations of a nearby building.

Sampling the wood has dated the pile from around 75AD.
