Londinium

To celebrate the unique Roman heritage at the heart of the capital, the City of London Corporation is staging a three-month season of events taking place from 28 July – 29 October 2017. Londinium will reveal the hidden history of Roman London, explore the great settlement’s contemporary legacy, and bring the Roman spirit to life for a 21st century audience.

Central to the programme is an emphasis on craftsmanship. The programme is packed with exhibitions which bring the public face to face with Roman artefacts, allowing them to handle ancient objects, and exhibitions which reimagine and reinterpret ancient Roman artistry. There will also be the opportunity to learn how to craft like a Roman. A seven-week workshop programme (2 September – 14 October) will teach participants about Roman mosaic-making, especially those created in Londinium, and adopt traditional mosaic making methods to enable you to fashion your own creation. Tuition and materials are included; appropriate for both experienced and novice artists.
