Have you ever wondered what London looked like over 2,000 years ago during the Roman Empire?
HISTORY™ has joined forces with the Museum of London to develop a free new app for your iPhone or iPad. Streetmuseum Londinium gives you the opportunity to see Roman London as it might have been centuries ago.
Key Roman sites in London will be brought to life through augmented reality video which will overlay scenes of Roman London onto the view today as seen through your camera.
Have a go at digitally excavating Roman artefacts by blowing or using your finger to dig and reveal objects including a leather bikini, a foot-shaped
lamp, and a hoard of gold coins.
An ancient map helps you to explore the city and uncover what stands there now - did you know The Roman Temple of Mithras stood just moments away from where Bank Tube station is now situated? Or that the Amphitheatre - used for gladiatorial games - was located near St. Paul’s Cathedral?
