History of London 5

A brief introduction to the complicated evolution of the historic city of London. Here, Peter Murray explains the development of the capital, from its inception 2,000 years ago with the Roman settlement on the Thames to its role as a major trading city and establishment of seat of British government, and discusses particular challenges it has faced, including the Great Fire of 1666, the onslaught of the Blitz in World War II, and the expansion of the city.

Perhaps 1000 years was added to the calendar as some have stated and the great fire happened in the year 666?

I'm here due to the fact that for Christmas my family got a trip to London and Paris, however my parents decided to cancel it because of me not being educated enough to appreciate the historical sights, so here I am educating myself so I can prove a point.

Curiously, the narrator evades the invasion of immigration to make London what it was and contrast what it is today.
London was poorer than most cities from the start it was clear. But immigrants changed its face, not just from abroad, but the hardworking Northerners of England. The great industrialization plays a huge part in the changed face of London as well.

The be fair, there is so much one can write about London. And despite its turmoil and varied plus sordid past, it still is one of, if not, the greatest cities in the world.
Having said that, I would defy anyone to say that it is hindsight which made London.
Although we may have overused that noun in recent times.
