Archaeological treasures uncovered in London

More than ten thousand objects have been unearthed so far in the city's financial district.

    Thousands of Roman artifacts have been unearthed in an archaeological dig hailed as "the most important excavation ever held in London."

    The treasure trove was uncovered near the River Thames at a building site in the city's financial district.
