Fun fun fun!!!! On to the Registered Finds, those objects with something a bit special about them.

There was this pretty nice medieval comb from the Fleet Valley which @NatashaBarret18 was lucky to pick out

A fragment of hair from Custom House may have put some off their lunch (thanks to @decodedPast for that one)

Always nice to see some early packaging – in this case a tobacco tin to store some cool roman pottery from Noble Street (we’ll be repacking this one later!)

@IndianaHannah managed to pick out an amazing medieval floor tile from New Fresh Wharf depicted the 3 lions of Richard I

And then there was this incredible wooden door from Vine Lane which I happen to know was reused in the watersiderevetments! Nice one @xoSazzlexo

Next it’s our Environmental Finds Archive. These are typically extremely small objects that take up little space (hence the small shelf range) and include objects such as seeds, pollen and small animal bones etc. Tweet @MuseumOfLondon or @AdamCorsini using #dayofarch or#ArchiveLottery, or message us a number below, between 1 and 44 to discover, completely at random, what that shelf holds…
