Archaeologists have unearthed a hoard of more than 1,000 ancient Roman artefacts in central London.
Buckets, bowls and dishes mostly made of copper alloy were among the items discovered in Moorgate, on the edge of the city's financial district.
Also discovered was the most complete wooden door to have survived anywhere in the Roman Empire and 19 metal vessels in the bottom of a wood-lined well.
Jenny Hall, curator of Roman London at the Museum of London, which revealed the finds, described them as "amazing".
"I just couldn't stop grinning when I first saw them," she told The Times newspaper.
"In size and scale they are simply unprecedented.
"Nothing like this has ever been found in London before, or anywhere else in Britain."
The items, from the first to third centuries AD, were discovered by archaeologist Chris Jarrett and are expected to give researchers a unique insight into the Roman city of Londinium.
