Right in the middle of a sketchy neighborhood you will find the Mortimer Wheeler House. Most people do not know what is inside the building at 46 Eagle Wharf Road. It is probably a good thing that people do not know, for security reasons.

The picture on the right shows boxes of human skeleton pieces. There are around 17,00 skeletons or bits of skeletons stored in the building. The picture on the left shows the climate controlled archive storage.
The most interesting part of the tour for me was being able to look through the stalls that hold the social and working history collections. The Museum of London tries to own one of everything. I know that sounds funny, but it is the best way to describe the collection. The stalls contain all types of collections of materials.
As you can see, we had the opportunity to see really cool items at Mortimer Wheeler House. I would definitely advise the feeling of jealousy to be arising within you at this very moment. We even got to see something that I can't talk about on here or I would have to kill you...sorry, I couldn't resist.
