A MASSIVE archaeological dig along the Thames' shore was made possible thanks to a £421,500 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Thames Discovery Programme starts in October this year and offers Londoners the chance to volunteer and do some digging into London's history.

The Thames Estuary Partnership and the Thames Explorer Trust project lasts three years and will uncover the secrets of the Thames.

Schoolchildren will be invited to visit education centres, there will be travelling exhibitions and it's hoped over 20,000 Londoners will get involved.
