London's City Wall was the second biggest building project undertaken by the Romans in Britain after Hadrian's Wall. Originally built using 90,000 tons of quarried Kentish stones, its many layers enshrine the victories and catastrophes of the eventful story of the City of London, spanning two thousand years up to the present day. Yet incredibly, the monument languishes as a footnote in the capital's history - until now. Walking London Wall aims to fill this gap, providing an up-to-date history and guide to one of London's oldest and least known monuments. Walking London Wall can be read from the comfort of an armchair or as an on-site guide. Also included for the first time is a complete exploration of the Roman Riverside Wall, long a matter of debate and conjecture. Part travel, part archaeology, part national, local and social history, Walking London Wall is the first ever complete account of this monument, as well as practical guide to what survives of it above and below ground. Anyone interested in the history of London will find this an informative and enjoyable read.
