Synopsis

The city of Norwich is renowned for its Norman castle, its cathedral and flint city walls, parts of which are still visible today. It is, and was, a `Fine City', the largest walled town in England during the Middle Ages, a rich provincial city still with many well-preserved medieval buildings and, reputedly, once having a church for every week and a pub for every day of the year!



Originally published in 1994, this newly revised and updated edition presents an overview of the history and development of the city, beginning with its pre-urban days, through the fundamental changes brought by the Normans, the thriving medieval commercial centre, and on to post-medieval industrialisation, war-damage and post-war development.
