About the Event

Join us to hear from London’s Roman expert, Dr Elliott and discover the remnants of an ancient Roman temple dedicated to the Goddess Mithras. See first hand a selection of remarkable Roman artefacts found during recent excavations. The site lies over the course of one of London’s lost rivers, the Walbrook. Nearly 2,000 years ago when Londinium was founded by the Romans, this river marked the limits of their first settlement. In the 3rd century AD, nearly 200 years after the founding of London, a Roman Londoner, built a temple to the god Mithras on this reclaimed ground, next to the river. After the tour guests will convene for drinks at The Candlemaker, located in the Wallbrook Building, 99 Cannon Street, EC4N 5EA.
