From the days of the Romans to the Victorian engineers who created the Tower Bridge, through compelling lives and adventures:  Julius, the small time Roman coin forger, risking his life to find buried treasure;   Dame Barnikel who runs the tavern where Chaucer carouses; Edmund Meredith and the actors of the Globe Theatre and little Lucy, who lives by the Thames in Dickens’ day. A history of London, ‘told’ by those who were there.
