London has for most of 2000 years been the hub of the political, economic, and cultural life of the British Isles. No other city has held such a dominant national position for so long. This new study, by the doyen of London historians, describes London's diverse past, from its origins as aRoman settlement at the first bridging of the Thames to the world-class metropolis it is today. It provides a vivid account of a city which was the 'deere sweete' place which Chaucer loved more than any other city on earth, which was for Dickens his 'magic lantern', and to Keats 'a great sea',howling for more wrecks. It is also a story of much contrast and remarkable resilience; through great fires and pestilence, civil war, and the Blitz, London has rebuilt and reinvented itself for each generation.

A report on two series of excavations carried out between 1951 and 1975 and between 1975 and 1978, at Little Oakley, north-east of Colchester. It summarises evidence for the pre-Roman period, the Iron Age settlement preceding the Roman villa of the 2nd to 5th century AD. This integrated series of reports also includes the material finds and discussion of the wider area around the villa and its relationship with the major town of Colchester.
