Abstract

Eighty-seven diatom taxa including marine, brackish, and freshwater forms were identified from foreshore sediments accumulated against pre-AD 100 quay structures exposed during the excavation of an early Roman waterfront site in the city of London. The spectra indicate that the Roman port was probably established close to the tidal head of the river.
