Mithraeum site in London is on the move again


The infamous archaeological Mithraeum site in London, UK is on the move again. It was moved in the 1950s/60s to it’s current location and will now be returned.

The Roman Britain collection, which I have been working with, was donated to the Museum of Ontario Archaeology in 1950; was excavated from a Blitz crater near the this Mithraeum site.  It was originally found on Walbrook Street in 1954.

You can read more about the Roman Britain collection here.

Hopefully the archaeologists working on the project are able to recreate the site to more accurately represent the original temple. I hope to visit it one day!

I am a museologist and an archaeologist. I love both, but they work best when mixed together.
