London Mithraeum: First look at rediscovered Roman temple beneath Bloomberg headquarters
This is the first look inside an 1,800-year-old Roman temple that has been brought back to life in London.
The building, dedicated to the god Mithras, has been restored to its original site, which lies beneath the new multi-million-pound Bloomberg headquarters near Mansion House.
The remains are enhanced by light and sound effects, including chants inspired by ancient graffiti found scrawled on a similar temple in Rome. This recreates what historians say is “a best guess” about what went on during ceremonies there.
