Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

Visit London’s Roman Amphitheatre and London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE to explore the themes of rubbish and recycling – Roman style.

To the Romans it was rubbish – but to archaeologists it’s buried treasure! Find out just how long discarded items can last in the ground, how rubbish has changed the landscape of London, and how even 2000 years ago the Romans knew a thing or two about recycling.

Make your own gladiator from recycled material, decorate a Roman pot and march between the two sites in the company of a Roman centurion for an ancient view of the city.
