PUBLISHED: 13:04 27 February 2013 | UPDATED: 13:04 27 February 2013

The Museum of London is looking for Bromley residents to help unearth the borough’s hidden past.

As part of its Unearthing Bromley project, the museum will host a series of events where people can help care for artefacts.

It will focus on the archaeological finds made in Keston from the early 1960s until the 1980s – the largest dig ever in southeast London.

Teams then produced evidence of people living in the area from the Iron Age, through to the times of the Romans and Saxons.

Free events will take place at Bromley Museum, in Orpington, every Wednesday in March, as well as at The Glades, in Bromley, between March 8 and March 10, and between March 15 and March 22 at Tesco Extra, in Orpington. For times, visit
