'Our Londinium 2012' opened in June 2012 as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad programme, Stories of the World.
The exhibition is situated in the Roman gallery and explores the parallels between Roman London and today's modern capital.
An animated wallpaper projection draws visitors into the Museum giving a subtle taster of what is to come. The Thames river takes a central role in the animation, as it has done in London's long history, linking three historical periods which are featured in the Museum: the Prehistoric age, Roman London and London as we all know it today.
The touchscreen interactive features a 3D cross-section map of modern day London. A number of Roman objects hover on the map and users are invited to select them and find out about their stories through photos, explanatory text and videos made by Junction, the museum's youth panel. The interactive brings London's Roman history closer to us by drawing a relationship with London as we recognise it today.
