Sinopsis y resumen del libro LONDON: A TRAVEL GUIDE THROUGH TIME

Go back in time and discover the sights, sounds and smells of London through the centuries on this fascinating journey into the rich, overflowing and occasionally dangerous past of the capital.


A time travel guide is easily the most attractive social history of the capital since Liza Picard's books a decade ago.

- Londoner

Let time traveler Dr. Matthew Green be your guide to six extraordinary periods in London's history - the ages of Shakespeare, life in the medieval city, the plague, the cafes, the reign of Victoria and the Blitz.

We'll turn back the clock to Shakespeare's time and visit a wild bull and bear bait arena at the Bankside.

In medieval London, we will wrap around the walls while the city is barricaded under curfew, while turning later in time we will inhale the "sacred herb" in an ancient tobacconist, before peeking into an open plague pit.

In the 18th century, we'll navigate the streets in style with a sedan chair ride, and when we land in Victorian London, we'll tour the monster cabins and meet Elephant Man.

You will meet pornographers and traitors, actors and apothecaries, the crazy, bad and dangerous to meet, all desperate to show you the exciting and vibrant history of the most animated city in the world.
