A Red Rose on a Velvet Cushion – Sue on the rich historical tapestry of London

“Centuries-old traditions, customs, rituals, ceremonies and punishments are played out year after year as though today’s world didn’t’ exist.”  Everything from “the annual conveyance of a boar’s head to the Lord Mayor of London to furred gowns and Tudor caps and posies to the beating of the River Thames – beating it into the memory.” Here’s Sue on the ancient customs and traditions of the ancient City of London. It’s a taster from her wonderful Mediaeval London walk.
