Each epoch is covered by a chapter which starts with the contemporary footprint of London superimposed in a base map common to all the chapters. It is easy to see the growth of Roman "Lundinium", its abandonment for the settlement of Lundenwic just upstream, and the repopulation of the old Roman walled city during the 10th century. Each chapter covers the main industries, the size of the population and their daily lives as well as architecture and surviving examples. I spent about 6 hours methodically poring over the illustrations. It was absolutely enthralling.
