Everyday Life in Medieval London Summary

Everyday Life in Medieval London: From the Anglo-Saxons to the Tudors by Toni Mount

Our capital city has always been a thriving and colourful place, full of diverse and determined individuals developing trade and finance, exchanging gossip and doing business. Abandoned by the Romans, rebuilt by the Saxons, occupied by the Vikings and reconstructed by the Normans, London would become the largest trade and financial centre, dominating the world in later centuries. London has always been a brilliant, vibrant and eclectic place - Henry V was given a triumphal procession there after his return from Agincourt and the Lord Mayor's river pageant was an annual medieval spectacular. William the Conqueror built the Tower, Thomas Becket was born in Cheapside, Wat Tyler led the peasants in revolt across London Bridge and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales was the first book produced on Caxton's new printing press in Westminster. But beneath the colour and pageantry lay dirt, discomfort and disease, the daily grind for ordinary folk. Like us, they had family problems, work worries, health concerns and wondered about the weather.

About Toni Mount

Toni Mount's first career was in science before spending many years in a second profession, teaching. She has a first class honours degree from the Open University, an MA by Research in medieval medicine from the University of Kent, Diplomas in European Humanities, Literature and Creative Writing. Her love of history led to a third career as a writer, specialising in the ordinary lives and fascinating characters from history. Her first book, released by Amberley Publishing in 2014, was Everyday Life in Medieval London. She continues to teach history to adults both in person and online and has now written many successful non-fiction and fiction books. This latest study, The World of Isaac Newton, sees her return to her first love, science, with the chance to take a fresh look at one of the world's most famous characters.
