You will experience the sights (some pretty, most ugly), the smells (some fragrant, most offensive) and lives (some successful, most tragic) of its inhabitants through the ages. All contain quizzes and other interactive features, plus listings of relevant places to visit and things to do, and will prove both highly entertaining for their readers and invaluable for schools. Here are just some of the topics that this book will cover: The decline of London after the Romans scarpered; What did the new Lundenwic look like?; Viking invasion; What did people wear, how did they make a living?; Where did Alfred the Great burn his cakes?; Viking invasion; Why was Ethelred so Unready?; The Battle of London Bridge; Viking invasion; King Canute; Edward the Confessor and his French mates; Norman invasion A sane (honest) guide to London's most confusing period - including an archaeological trail for present-day readers, some of the funniest names in English history, the markets, the slaves, the endless changes of power and the everyday life of an average confused Saxon Londoner.
