The Museum of London beckons...

This Roman sculpture (65 by 55cm) was recently found at a building site in Minories in the City and is said to be the best of its kind ever excavated in London. It was probably part of a mausoleum and dates to the first or second centuries AD. Anyway it's now on display for six months in the Museum of London which is another reason to go there as it's also exhibiting (until the end of April) the Cheapside Hoard, a stunning collection of late 16th and early 17th century jewels discovered in a cellar in Cheapside in 1912.
