London History

There have been humans in the area now occupied by London since the Iron Age, although when a settlement was first founded remains a matter of some dispute. But since the Romans founded Londinium nearly two millennia ago, the city has taken its place at the heart of Britain as the home of the Royal Family and the seat of government.

No matter what your interest in London's past - as an outpost of the Roman empire, the starting point for the Peasants' Revolt of 1381, a newly emerging centre for trade in Tudor times, an intellectual hotbed focussed on the Georgian coffeehouses, a squalid home for poverty and crime as documented by Dickens, an indomitable cell of resistance against the Luftwaffe's bombing raids or a hotbed of youth culture in the 1960s - you'll find fascinating insights in all the books here.
