The city of London was founded by the Romans and their rule extended . Most of current London is from the Victorian period

The city of London was founded by the Romans and their rule extended from 43 AD to the fifth century AD, when the Empire fell. During the third century, Londinium, the name given to the town by the Romans, had a population of 50,000, mainly due to the influence of its major port. Most of current London is from the Victorian period.

Contained within is the history of London up to the time of the Great Fire of 1666. A story of settlement, struggle, conquest, oppression, rebellion, war, plague and purifying fire. A story of Romans, Saxons, Vikings, Normans, Plantagenets, Tudors and Stuarts. Of kings and queens and gentlefolk and commoners, of knights and monks and and strutting players; of the anointed and ill-fated, the remembered and the forgotten.

This book about the history of the Tower of London was a disappointment. This book is a fascinating view of how and why the Tower of London was built. Mainly, it's a rambling overview of English history since the Norman Conquest. Regretably, it does not contain one single map of the tower, while it should have a series of maps showing the progression of construction since William's time. to the tradition of kings who waited to ride to Westminster Abbey for the coronation ceremony. The tower was to become the execution chamber for two of King Henry VIII wives.
