The Fields Beneath: the History of One London Village


Write The First Customer Review

An illuminating and richly rewarding study of London's Kentish Town that follows its growth from a scattering of cottages to what is now a thickly populated working class district. Along the way, this pre-Roman pack horse track became a medieval parish, prosperous Tudor village, 18th century resort of pleasure gardens, and a select residential suburb. "Uncommonly well done." --"Economist." "A model for future writers."--"New Statesman." "Superb."--"Financial Times." .
