Myths and Legends Walk

I did a Myths and Legends and Archaeology walk for London walks at the weekend - got loads of walkers and really enjoyed the revision and research. Quite an interesting topic and one which I should probably write up. I became interested in the idea of a Palladium for the first time - Bran's head, the Ravens, Vortimer, Cadwallo's burials at London gates, all protecting the City/Country from invasion. Blurb Myths, Legends and the Archaeology of London The walk looks at the myths and legends of London in light of archaeological discoveries. Was London founded by King Brutus? Is King Belinus buried at Billingsgate? The myths of the origins of London will be explored and the archaeology explained.
