This edible portrait of Mortimer Wheeler was baked by  Richard Ward, an  archaeologist working on one of the Walbrook sites currently under excavation by MOLA, and sent in by his colleague Sadie Watson. MOLA  have been raising money for  charity by baking cakes, and as this month’s cause was (of course) Movember, they chose to depict the moustachioed former  keeper of the London Museum, from where the  Museum of London developed. MOLA are still based in offices called  Mortimer Wheeler House.
