ARCHAEOLOGISTS working at building site in the City of London have discovered what they have called the Pompeii of the North.
Up to 10,000 Roman items are believed to be at the site which has been preserved by the water-logged lost Walbrook river.
The location of the historically important discovery is the future Bloomberg headquarters which will be just off Cannon Street,opposite St Stephen Walbrook church.
The work has been carried by the Museum of London Archaeology and seen discoveries that date back to the entire time that the Romans occupied Britain.
When the new office and retail development is completed in 2016, the items will go on show at a new exhibition within the building.
