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

Arranged in a clear chronological narrative accompanied by a wealth of maps, charts, illustrations and photographs, 'The Times History of London' is a vivid and compelling celebration of one of the world’s great cities. Its themes are as diverse as they are relevant, covering social and economic conditions, transport and trade, leisure, education and religion. The book traces London’s history from the earliest evidence of human settlement over 40,000 years ago to the present day.

Format: Hardcover
The Times History of London is a truly superb book. I bought it and could not put it down. Each page takes you on a voyage of discovery and tells you things you never knew about the history and social development of this amazing capital city. Absolutely brilliant 10 out of 10, a real MUST HAVE title!

Not just history, but the importance of London's geography in its growth as the leading world city.

Up until now there has been a lack of a good synopsis of London's past.

And a great coffee table book to pick up and browse.

A beautiful book. I had to buy one after glancing at a copy in the reading corner of our local hostelry.
There are plenty of interesting illustrations and Clout provides detailed insight into an endlessly fascinating city.

These books are amazing - unfortunately the kindle edition only goes up to the Tudors. So you should buy the physical book if you want a proper survey of London with all of the brilliantly written and concise chapters. I have no idea why it only goes up to the Tudors, very frustrating.
