Guided tour of London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE, Friday 17 November 17.30
Join Open City Friends for this exclusive guided tour of London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE.
The Temple of Mithras was built in AD 240 on the banks of the river Walbrook, in the heart of the Roman City of London. Its remains were discovered in 1954 by renowned archaeologist Professor W.F. Grimes during the excavations following the Blitz.
Today, London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE returns the temple to the original location, seven meters below ground, in the heart of the City.
Situated on the site of Bloomberg’s European headquarters, this cultural hub showcases the ancient temple, a selection of the remarkable Roman artefacts found during the recent excavation, and a series of contemporary art commissions responding to one of the UK’s most significant archaeological sites.
This tour for Open City Friends is made possible by a new partnership with Bloomberg Connects, a free mobile app featuring guides to over 250 museums, galleries, sculpture parks, gardens, and cultural spaces - click the link to learn more.
