Summary

"The archaeological excavations at 1 Poulty included burials associated with the medieval church of St Benet Sherehog, and a post-Great Fire burial ground on the same location, which served the combined parishes of St Benet and St Stephen Walbrook until 1853. This volume presents the evidence for 280 burials found in the burial ground. The parish of St Benet Sherehog before and after the Great Fire is considered in terms of the documented population, their occupations, wealth, health, and mortality. Evidence for the medieval church of St Benet and the religious life of the parish follows. A detailed account of the human skeletal remains from the 17th to 19th century burials sample is included and compared with contemporary London cemetery populations."--BOOK JACKET.
