LLH member, Debb Schmidle, is launching a new series of programs on the History of London. This will be an eight week series ending on February 21, 2024.

History of London Course Description 


Spanning the centuries from the Roman occupation through the new millennium, this eight-week series of talks will highlight the history of well-known locales such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square and the Tower of London, as well as lesser-known and historical gems throughout the city. Each week will focus on a different time period, with lectures accompanied by photos, suggested readings, maps, and other materials. Whether you are visiting London for the first time, have been to the city, or just want to learn about its history from the comfort of your armchair, this course will enhance your experience. Come join us to discover why elephants used to live at the Tower of London, how London came to have a city within the city, the location and history of the smallest police station in London, where to get a great photo opportunity of St. Paul’s while enjoying a cup of coffee, how to see the ruins of a Roman forum for the price of a haircut, and much more!
