‘Looking for Londoners’ is an audio-free, looping film that we created for the Archaeology section of the Museum of London.

It is a permanent exhibition and is the first thing the museum visitor will see as they start their tour around the museum. It needed to explain that archaeology is a not a dry, boring subject about digging up bits of broken pottery from the ground, but it actually far more interesting as it gives us insight into how our ancestors lived in the city that we now inhabit. And a lot of the time shows us that they faced the same emotions, struggles and joys that we experience now, despite some aspects of our lives being vastly different.
