mintedOperating in a reverse direction to the contemporary technological plague, 14th century Londoners first suffered the miseries of the black death, dying and laid to rest in London’s East Smithfield plague cemetery, where their remains, five hundred years later, were further subjected to chemistry and acids leaching through the soil from the workings of the Royal Mint erected on the grave site.

On Tuesday 19th June a group revisited this site, aiming to revive and retransmit any traces of these terrible events. Minted hosts recordings from this collective excursion.
