London in the Middle Ages


Now I am reading about the Middle Ages in my book.

Here’s a video on London’s Guildhall (and other bits of architecture) which is an impressive 14th century building and still standing up. I always seemed to walk past there but I really must go and see it one day.

When I visit the Guildhall, I’ll imagine the fashions, the smells, heroic knights, food they ate like beavers and thrushes, the Church forcing people to pay high taxes, all that disease and people going round in horseback not on boris bikes.
