Londinium through a lens

Regulars here will know how much I enjoy the Museum of London - now here's a chance for you to join in. They are running a wonderful collaborative exhibition curated by young people; you can read the press release for Londinum through a lens here.

The exhibition looks at the parallels between modern and Roman London.It opens in June and features a map that will be made up of images showing Roman influences in London today. They are encouraging photographers to submit their photos and hoping it becomes a really fun, visual and engaging insight into the Roman legacy in modern London. Details of how to submit photos via email or Flickr are on

This sculpture is outside the National Gallery and is rather fun - it is of James II - "JAcobus Secundus" all togged out as a Roman. Complete with paunch.
