Summary

London Bridge has been the subject of landscape painters and the inspiration of writers, poets and creators of nursery rhymes for centuries and is crossed by thousands of people everyday. This publication from the Museum of London presents a 13-step guide to the history and archaeology of London Bridge from prehistoric times to the present day. Bruce Watson describes the evidence for the first timber river crossing of the Roman period, the Saxon bridge and refortification of London c. AD 1000, the medieval bridge as well as more recent periods of collapse, dismantlement and rebuilding. Based on information and finds from excavations taking place around the bridge since the early 19th century, this is an excellent history of an important London monument.
