Host of History Hit’s The Ancients podcast, Tristan Hughes, is joined by author and Director of the UCL, Centre for Applied Archaeology, Professor Dominic Perring, to discuss the dramatic rise and fall of Roman London in the apt and atmospheric setting of the London Mithraeum.

Join them via livestream to hear how the busy early Roman port city bounced back from being razed to the ground by British rebels under Boudica (Queen Boadicea of Victorian re-imagining), in AD 60, and again when Hadrian was emperor; but struggled to recover from the plagues and military crises of the 2nd and 3rd centuries. With its port destroyed, and reinvented as a walled enclave of power and privilege, London remained the place from which Rome ruled Britain into the 4th century.

Learn from the experts the fascinating story of why the city finally fell, and was essentially abandoned, in the early 5th century and put your questions to the pair in real time.
