What is the London Stone, the dusty piece of stone in a derelict office block on Cannon Street? The remains of a Stone Circle? A druid alter stone? A Roman mile-stone?Part of a Ley Line? The Palladium of Troy?  

John Clark, for many years curator of the medieval collections at the Museum of London and now ‘Curator Emeritus’, has long been interested in the interplay between history, archaeology and legend in the story of London, from the works of Geoffrey of Monmouth to the burial of Boadicea under King’s Cross station. 

In this talk he investigates the ‘real’ story of London Stone, in Cannon Street, and the way in which myths have developed around it .


Doors 7pm. A small cash bar will be available for alcoholic drinks on the night.
