Some of the gods worshipped by Londoners were imported by the Romans along with wine and fish sauce. But there were older unnameable gods that sprang from the English soil.
Robert Kingham explores London's historical, mythical and contemporary pagan connections. He roves across the city to bring together history and archaeology; and explores how ancient pagans and modern Londoners seek meaning in a jumble of myth and tradition. Robert takes us on a pagan perambulation to visit The Stanwell Cursus, the Shepperton Henge, The Dagenham Idol, Fenning's Wharf, Springhead, The Temple of Diana, The Strand Maypole on the Strand and Druid Street.
Robert, in collaboration with the award-winning film-maker Jeremiah Quinn, has produced Pagan London, a twelve-part documentary film series exploring London's historical, mythical and contemporary pagan connections.Robert will talk about the background to the film, and tell some stories that didn't quite make it in there. There will follow a screening of all twelve episodes, and a Q&A session.
