Item description for Life And Death in London's East End: 2000 Years at Spitalfields by Chris Thomas...
This book chronicles the discoveries made on the site of Spitalfields Market in east London. Once the burial ground for some of the wealthiest members of Roman London, Spitalfields became the home of one of the country's largest and most important hospitals in the Middle Ages looking after the poor and the sick. The total of more than 10,500 skeletons found in the cemetery form the single largest archaeologically excavated group in the world. Spitalfields is also famous for its multiethnic community and this book tells the story of the first immigrants, the Huguenots, through the Jewish communities and up to the Bengali community today.
