Classicists Visit Roman London

Thursday 21 June 2018

UF and Deps (Years 10 and 12) Classicists travelled to see two recently opened highlights of Roman London – the Museum of London Docklands exhibition on ‘Roman Dead’ and the Mithraeum inside the Bloomberg building.

 

The former is a temporary exhibition showing some new and old finds from the sarcophagi and cremation jars of the 1st to 4th century inhabitants of the city. The latter is a recently discovered and opened temple of Mithras, one of the most popular cults amongst Roman soldiers in particular during the same period.

 

Pupils then relaxed with a sandwich in the sunshine of Paternoster square, outside St Paul’s Cathedral and moments from the original site of Christ’s Hospital.
