"When you think of London, the words 'a medieval lasagne' probably don't spring to mind. But that's exactly what some archaeologists call the Charterhouse district, on account of the many layers of plague-ridded corpses buried on top of each other there. This riveting tour is all about London's deep, dark history, and it peels back the layers one step at a time: from gladiators to the Great Fire, and the Black Death to the Blitz. You'll be guided along some of the capital’s original streets, following in the footsteps of people like William ‘Braveheart’ Wallace, and discovering some of its most shocking secrets."
