Product description

Review

"The text is brimming with absorbing and comprehensive historical narrative, the most recent archaeological findings, fascinating photographs, and a wealth of statistics and maps. Fully recommended." Now & Then, March 2008

“a lavishly illustrated and totally engrossing look at the history of our capital over the past 2,000 years… a real delight." Ham & High, 25th October 2007

From the Back Cover

London is one of the greatest historic cities of the modern world. Once the hub of the British empire and the world’s biggest port, it is still one of Europe’s principal business and financial centres and is home to the oldest parlimentary systems and the world’s most famous monarchy. As the capital turns its face towards the 21st century, this new edition of London’s most complete and illuminating history looks both back and forward, providing fresh insights into the city’s past and the challenges which face it in the future.

Arranged in a clear chronological order, with a concise and lucide narrative and over 300 maps and illustrations, The Times History of London traces the history of London from the earliest evidence of human habitation 40,000 years ago to the city in the 21st century.

The coverage is as diverse as it is relevant. Under the direction of Professor Hugh Clout of University College London, this new edition has been compiled by a team of over 20 leading archaeologists, historians and geographers, making it a visual and narrative feast and an indispensable companion to the Londoner and lover of London alike.
