The end of Roman London has too often been discussed using models that are poorly rooted in empirical evidence. This paper utilises data from archives and commercial contractors to plot the distribution of activity in London at the end of the fourth century. This challenges the notion that much of the late Roman city was deserted. However, a brief consideration of early Anglo-Saxon London and Southwark demonstrates that by the late fifth century the City and Southwark were abandoned.
