Conway Hall Ethical Society & London Fortean Society presents LONDON STONE: MYSTERY AND MYTH… “John Clark, for many years curator of the medieval collections at the Museum of London and now ‘Curator Emeritus’, has long been interested in the interplay between history, archaeology and legend in the story of London, from the works of Geoffrey of Monmouth to the burial of Boadicea under King’s Cross station. In this talk he investigates the ‘real’ story of London Stone, in Cannon Street, and the way in which myths have developed around it in the last 150 years.” 7.30-9pm. Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, Holborn, WC1R 4RL
