Summary

Dan Jones, Suzannah Lipscomb and Rob Bell continue their trip through London's history, examining medieval times to find a city torn by deadly rivalry, power-hungry kings and devastating disease. Suzannah discovers what evidence Westminster Abbey holds about the contest between the Crown and the City, while Dan fills in the holes left by the nursery rhyme as he reveals the little-known true story of the businessman-cum-mayor Dick Whittington, who went on to control the fortunes of kings.
