Cover 66 outside

All members should have now received their copy of the new volume. The cover serves as a vivid reminder that this year was the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.Therefore, in remembrance of this conflagration which dramatically changed the appearance of London we published a number of themed articles: Dorian Gerhold reconsidered the location of the bakehouse where it started; Professor Harvey produced a post-script to his (1960) foreign visitor’s eye witness description to the destruction and Nigel Jeffries has described the contemporary material culture as revealed by excavations at One New Change. The history and architecture of one of the City of London’s parish churches which was severely damaged by this conflagration, St Dunstan in the East, was described in another article by Jennifer Ledfors. Other articles included fieldwork at Westminster Abbey by Paw Jorgensen, Ironmonger Row Baths (Islington) by Peter Boyer, HM Tower of London by Anthony Mackinder and Graham Keevill and the City of London priory of the Crossed Friars by Antonietta Lerz and Nick Holder. John Clark described the religious controversy that took place at the enigmatic London Stone in Cannon Street during the 16th century. There are also illustrated summaries of the lectures given at the latest Archaeology (2016) and Local History (2015) conferences, plus a number of book reviews.
