Not since 1951 has there been a serious attempt to chronicle the history of East London. Old East Enders tells East London’s story from Roman Shadwell to the present day, focusing on the untold story of the medieval and early modern Tower Hamlets. Jane Cox is an experienced author and lecturer, and her immensely readable and entertaining new book takes in recent archaeological research and a whole range of new record research. A wide range of fascinating and in some cases previously unpublished illustrations further enliven the text, which illuminates the history of this part of London as never before.
