The London Mithraeum ★★★★ FREE


A fascinating peek into Roman London and the mysterious cult favoured by Roman soldiers. The history of the discovery of this site and its excavation is as fascinating as the discovery itself. The presentation is first-rate and makes looking at the artifacts genuinely fun. The temple “event” actually creates a sense of the mysteries that once were celebrated there. If you are a classical history buff, this one must not be missed and for others it is an easy way to find a connection to Roman Britain … a great complement to the Roman collection at the Museum of London. And unlike some of London’s museums which can be rather overwhelming, this one leaves the visitor wanting more.
