The history of the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, began in the seventeenth-century and developed and expanded over the following 350 years. The archaeological investigation of this nationally important site only began in 1999 but has continued every year since. This talk will look at the history and archaeology of this fascinating site as well as how it was possible to record such a vast site that produced surprises along the way including evidence that took Woolwich back 6,000 years as well as how the regeneration of the site formed part of a European project.
