The aim of this course is to provide students with an appreciation of contemporary London as a reflection of its immense history. The course is divided into two parts. Part One consists of a series of 6 weekly lectures that broadly follow the development of London from the Norman Conquest until the end of the Second World War. Part Two begins immediately after the midterm break, and involves students selecting one of a series of tutorials that will focus on a particular period of London’s history for more in-depth exploration. These tutorials include: Medieval London; Living and Dying in C17th and C18th Century London; Episodes of the First World War.
