Hi guys, 
Just a note to say the skin found in the Thames midden was actually a plantain, not a banana. I emailed the gentleman in charge at the museum just after the London Eats Out exhibition (which is when it was displayed) and he said DNA tests had proven it to be such. You can see a rather small photo of it (pre-digital camera days for me!) on my website here:
