Below the pavements and around the foundations of the City’s offices lies a layer of Dark Earth: the debris from the collapse and decay of lost centuries, including that of Roman London.
Powered by wiretapper, Dark Earth is an audio curiosity that delves into the City’s ancient secrets. This is the sound of a civilisation teetering on the edge of its downfall.
To access this extraordinary immersive experience, you will need a smart phone, a pair of headphones and a coat. On the morning of the event, the mystery location in the City of London will be revealed and you will be taken through the streets and down into the Dark Earth.
