Bloomberg L.P.’s award-winning European headquarters in London is located on one of the U.K.’s most significant archaeological sites and includes an ancient temple dedicated to the Roman god Mithras. As the steward of the site and its artifacts, Bloomberg created the London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE to offer the public a new way to experience this historic landmark.
Bloomberg’s commitment to the arts has helped not only strengthen our economy, but also to promote the key message that London is open to great art, creativity, and to everyone.
Justine Simons, Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries, London, United Kingdom
At the site, archaeologists unearthed more than 400 fragments of ancient Roman writing tablets. The collection is the largest and earliest of its kind in Britain and includes the first known reference to London, the city’s first known financial document, and the earliest handwritten document in Britain. Free and open to the public, it showcases the ancient temple, a selection of Roman artifacts found during the recent excavation, and a series of contemporary art commissions inspired by the archaeology of the site.
In addition, Bloomberg’s European headquarters includes exciting new artworks inside and outside of the building, reflecting a belief that art fuels collaboration and innovation in the workplace.
