Find the Roman wharf at St Magnus-the-Martyr

As anyone who has watched Tony Robinson's introduction video at the Museum of London Docklands will know, the porch at St Magnus-the-Martyr holds an ancient piece of wood.

Once part of one of the Roman wharves of the City of London, the piece of wood is thought to date from around AD 75, the wood is thought to be part of a beam at the wharf, and was found under Fish Street, just across the road from the church.
