Reconstructed Roman Temple of Mithras opens to the public

One of the most important discoveries of the 20th century will open to the public next week.
The Temple of Mithras was built around 200 years after the Romans first settled in London.
It made front-page news when it was discovered by chance in 1954 - but the Cannon Street site wasn't properly excavated until building work began in 2010.
A reconstruction using the latest technology will now reveal the temple and its treasures as it would have been, thousands of years ago.
