This podcast is a quick introduction – a precis – by the guide, archaeologist Kevin Flude, to his upcoming Virtual Tour. The Walk’s called The Financial City but because it’s guided by Kevin, the distinguished emeritus Museum of London archaeologist, inevitably it drills all the way down to the Roman and mediaeval foundations of London as a financial capital. Drills all the way down and then comes up to the modern City. Drills down and comes up core sample by core sample. Best of all, the tour’s axes are both vertical and horizontal. Vertical because it drills down – and comes up through – time. And horizontal because Kevin ranges across the “locales” of financial London. Financial London today and financial London in the past.
