See the Setting of the Southwark Saga!

Hi everybody,

If the setting of the Southwark Saga feels a little unfamiliar to you (or if you just want more of it!), you can now experience it for yourself. Well, almost! Six students from De Montfort University have made this incredible three minute animation of London before the Great Fire in 1666. The Southwark Saga begins in 1671, but most of London and Southwark would have still looked like this. Check it out to fly through the streets past churches, pubs, and even gallows, and notice the beautiful architecture that has long since been replaced. One of those tall houses with the projecting top floor could be Mark's!

This is too awesome not to share. Enjoy!
