Description

This chapter brings together several themes which are loosely related: the archaeology of civic authority (the defences, London Bridge, Guildhall, inland markets, water supply), the deliberate manipulation of the extent of the built-up area of the City over time, including expansion into the River Thames, and a final section on the character of landuse outside the City walls, including places of public resort such as the Tudor theatres.
