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 www.museumoflondon.org.uk/ol2012map

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.

One of my favourite recent Roman London discoveries was that it was the Romans, not Transport for London, that really laid the foundations for Cycle Superhighway 7: http://invisiblevisibleman.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/what-have-romans-ever-done-for-us-well.html
