The London Guildhall: an archaeological history of a neighbourhood from early medieval to modern times
Evidence from archaeological excavations between 1985 and 1999 is combined with historical and architectural analysis to create a major integrated history of the London Guildhall, the home of the City of London’s government. Beginning with the first hall of the 12th century, the book describes later halls and precinct buildings from the 14th to the 20th centuries. Good organic survival preserved evidence in an 11th- and 12th-century parish churchyard and for a number of adjacent timber houses. This wide-ranging volume highlights other themes from the medieval and later periods, including evidence for medieval Jewish occupation, the cloth market of Blackwell Hall, inns, craft activity and two parish churches.
