A snapshot of Roman London worthy of a thumbs-up from the Emperor.
This is great app for any history lover. It transports you back nearly 2,000 years to the foundation of London, allowing you to witness how it grew into the cosmopolitan hub it is today.
The introduction upon first opening the app sets the scene, giving you a snapshot of the city that whets the appetite, and boy does it deliver.
Following the intro, you are presented with a map of London, but using the slider at the bottom of the screen you can gradually introduce a map of Roman London over the top, complete with numerous pins that highlight different interactive features within the app. These range from audio clips of the hustle and bustle of city life, to video clips of gladiators in the amphitheatre.
The app fully immerses you in Londinium, pulling you down to street level, but at the same time lets you play archaeologist as you use your fingers and blow into the microphone to unearth Roman artefacts all over the old city.
The interface is brilliantly simple, with your slider dictating how much of each map you’d like to see, and leaving you free to absorb all the info Streetmuseum is waiting to throw at you.
Full of detail and hidden treasures, a simple must-have for anyone with any kind of historical interest.
