Water power in Medieval Greenwich

We have just been sent a copy of "Current Archaeology" (Nov 2009 Issue 236 www.archaeology.co.uk). This has in it an article by Simon Davis on the tide mill remains found last year on the Lovell's site. This has lots of previously unused pictures as well as a diagram and many fascinating facts about the site. To quote some of the captions "It is a nationally unique discovery the only example of an Early Medieval waterwheel known" ... "Massive in scale the Greenwich Tide Mill must have served a major estate" .....

Simon is to give a presentation on the find to Greenwich Historical Society on 25th November (7.30 Theatre, Blackheath High School, Mycenae Road entrance, SE3)

also Archaeology 2010, British Museum 27-28 February in a session on Old Technology
