Tower of London


  • Intro

    Writers at this time were undecided about towns. On the one hand, they recognised them as powerful centres of economic, cultural, political, administrative and spiritual activity. But on the other hand, they saw that towns offered many wicked temptations, the most dangerous of which were taverns and alehouses, gambling dens and brothels. Towns could also be dirty, expensive and riddled with disease.


    Shelfmark: Royal 16 F II f.73
