A report on a sequence of twenty-five closely-dated timber revetments which formed the embanking of the river Thames in the late Anglo-Saxon and early-medieval period. The excavations come from four sites, Billingsgate Lorry Park (1982-3), Seal House (1974), Trig Lane (1974-86), and Thames Exchange (1988-9). The study examines the structures primarily as examples of medieval timber building practice, rather than as waterfront installations. The report uncovers evidence for wide-ranging changes in vernacular timber-building practice in general at this time, and later chapters compare these conclusions with a range of timbers from medieval buildings in the City, and contemporary carpentry practice. A conclusion assesses timber-building traditions and types which, it is suggested, would have been present in medieval London.
