London: A Very Peculiar History

Add to Wishlist
  • Treat yourself to an entertaining and informative waltz through London, from 8,500 years ago—when rising water levels turned Britain into an island—through Roman, Viking, Angle, Saxon and Norman invasions, medieval pageants and plagues, to Tudor times, Georgian and Victorian reigns, and today’s still-evolving, cosmopolitan city. Along the way, you’ll discover lost rivers and buildings, royal residences, famous markets, haunted places, plus how to make jellied eels, pease pudding, and bubble and squeak. A book you’ll turn to time and again for delicious tidbits to share with London-loving friends. Hardcover, 192 pages; 4 " x 6 ". Playfully illustrated in black and white.
