A rarely seen collection of archival postcards, drawings, and photographs documenting London's great cemeteries. Since they were established in the 1830s, London's great cemeteries have inspired countless artists and photographers to record their quiet beauty and solemn majesty. Not just resting places for the city's honoured dead, they also serve as great repositories of social, architectural, and geographic history, reflecting our changing attitudes to the great inevitable. Featuring over 170 images, along with comprehensive notes, The Honoured Dead presents a rarely seen collection of archival postcards, drawings, and photographs gathered over many years by author and former funeral director Brian Parsons. As well as the celebrated "Magnificent Seven" necropolises--Highgate, Kensal Green, West Norwood, Abney Park, Nunhead, Brompton, and Tower Hamlets--the book also documents cemeteries and burial sites throughout Greater London and its environs, some of them now themselves buried by time. Providing a unique perspective on London's past, and its shifting visual representation, The Honoured Dead is a collection to be remembered with flowers.

This major new work on Roman London brings together the many new discoveries of the last generation and provides a detailed overview of the city from before its foundation in the first century to the fifth century AD. Richard Hingley explores the archaeological and historical evidence for London under the Romans, assessing the city in the context of its province and the wider empire. He explores the multiple functions of Londinium over time, considering economy, industry, trade, status and urban infrastructure, but also looking at how power, status, gender and identity are reflected through the materiality of the terrain and waterscape of the evolving city. A particular focus of the book is the ritual and religious context in which these activities occurred. Hingley looks at how places within the developing urban landscape were inherited and considers how the history and meanings of Londinium built upon earlier associations from its recent and ancient past. As well as drawing together a much-needed synthesis of recent scholarship and material evidence, Hingley offers new perspectives that will inspire future debate and research for years to come. This volume not only provides an accessible introduction for undergraduate students and anyone interested in the ancient city of London, but also an essential account for more advanced students and scholars.
