** Please note you must book in advance using Eventbrite to join this walking tour **

Walk through Londinium from the south-east corner of the City on the riverside through to the banks of the Walbrook and then to the northwestern corner near the late first century fort in one morning. Starting on Lower Thames Street we will explore three preserved archaeological sites in London – Billingsgate Roman House and Baths, London Mithraeum Bloomberg Space and London’s Roman Amphitheatre at Guildhall. The aim is to have a walking symposium comparing the interpretation and presentation of evidence, the emotional response to and future direction of each site, as well as thinking about bits of Londinium that the public might and might not know about and what to do about them, if anything. We will finish in the Roman gallery at the Museum of London, soon to be moved and reconfigured in its new space at Smithfield. The story of Londinium will be told in new ways, join us to explore what they could be.
