Five members of the London group plus a couple of guests from neighbouring groups made a fascinating visit to the London Mithraeum, with its reconstructed temple of Mithras and a host of Roman artefacts dug out of the course of the Walbrook, one of London’s lost rivers. We finished off the morning with a very good lunch in an upstairs room at Ye Olde Watling pub, sausages and chops (and cider) a speciality.
