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.

RHUBARB - During the three centuries before the nineteenth, China had become so cut off from Europe that senior mandarins were quite unsure where Britain was. They’d even been told that the western barbarians needed to import herbal rhubarb from China (a medicine), and that they would die if they couldn’t get it.
