Seven metres below modern street level, London Mithraeum offers visitors an immersive experience. The temple, originally constructed around AD 240, was discovered in the 1950s during the excavation of a World War II bomb site. An interactive exhibition provides the opportunity to learn about the temple and find out more about the mysterious Roman god Mithras and his worship across the Roman Empire. Visitors will also be able to see over 600 Roman artefacts discovered by archaeologists during the construction of Bloomberg’s new European headquarters, including London’s first financial document, a writing tablet dated 8 January AD 57.

Opens in Autumn 2017.
