Dark Earth

An irreverent historical walking tour through Roman London - following in the footsteps of archaeologists.

22 October 2017 – 29 October 2017 | Visit website

What is sitting beneath our feet? Under the chewing gum and the crisp packets of London's streets. Under the slabs of paving stone, the sand and clay, the fiberoptic cables, the skulls and the pottery, the loose change. Under all those things we have lost...
 
Surrounding the foundations of the offices that fill the City of London lies a layer of Dark Earth: the debris from the collapse and decay of Roman buildings. In this ancient soil we see a civilisation teetering on the edge of its downfall.

Dark Earth is an audio curiosity and irreverent walking tour delving into the City’s ancient secrets, commissioned by the City of London and powered by wiretapper. To access this extraordinary immersive experience, you will need a smart phone, a pair of headphones and a coat. On the morning of the event you will be told where to meet and be taken through the streets and down into the Dark Earth to discover a side of the City of London you've never seen before.

Dark Earth will take place Sunday 22 – Sunday 29 October at a mysterious location in the City of London, which will be revealed after booking. Tickets £5 plus booking fee.
