Wednesday 22 October The London Course – The Evolution of a Great City:The London of the Romans (lecture) This course will take the key essentials and historic landmarks of the growth of London from one to two cities, and then into a world city of millions. The prime aim is to understand the direct legacy which we have inherited today, and literally know where and why the place in which you stand is all created by an evolution stretching back two thousand years, in which the life of London and Londoners has developed. (NB. when reference is made to the City with a capital letter, it is the City of London.)
