Description

The chapter therefore outlines some of the attitudes displayed to medieval and Tudor London, its buildings and artefacts, by rulers, administrators, developers and residents in the four centuries since 1600; and from comparatively recently, the growing efforts of those concerned with recording the past as it was gradually but inevitably eroded. The two matters are inversely related: archaeologists of all kinds have become more numerous and stronger, but the archaeological resource has diminished.
