The History of London in Seven Buildings – clip
Don Brown / Dir, London Society
Let’s explore 1,000 years of London’s history through some of its world-famous structures. We’ll learn about the Tower of London–the Norman castle built to dominate the conquered Anglo-Saxons–and how it has been a fortress, a prison, a place of executions, and even a zoo. And we’ll visit Westminster Abbey, the site of royal coronations since 1066, and a national mausoleum with graves and memorials to thousands of the most important Britons in history. We’ll also explore St. Paul’s Cathedral: the instantly recognizable domed church that is built on the ruins of four others dating back to 604 CE.
