This series offers a unique journey through different periods in history. Detailed artworks tell the story of a specific location as it changes with time. As they explore each scene, readers learn about the people who lived in this place, looking at their beliefs and way of life. THROUGH TIME: LONDON follows the story of the historic capital from its Celtic origins right up to the present - including the settlement of the Romans, the Anglo-Saxon era, the Viking invasion, and the growth of medieval London in Norman times. Along the way, the book explores major events in London's history, such as the plague, the Great Fire and the Blitz of World War II.
