London Bridge

Though London Bridge makes many appearances in LONDON, from Roman times onwards, it is the central focus of the 'London Bridge' chapter, set in the high Middle Ages of Chaucer and the Black Prince, when, supporting two rows of gabled houses, it was at the height of its glory, and witnessed many scenes, including the Peasants Revolt.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
