‘And Did Those Feet’

Welcome to the new site.

I  have not yet had time to load the vast content of the old site, but I am working on it!  But you can read the original blog here .

This site is about London, archaeology, history and literary history, and more generally, heritage and museums.

Physical Walks for London Walks

The good news is that I am starting doing real physical Guided Walks again at the end of May.  We are going to start giving an Archaeology walk every Thursday evening at 6.30.   I am sharing them with a colleague, Leo Heaton.  She is doing the first on on the 20th May, and I am doing the second on the 27th May.  Later we plan to do another walk in the afternoon.  I am also putting together a series of special, repertory walks for London walks running throughout the summer.  To book click here

Virtual Walks

Meanwhile I am on my fifth season of Virtual Guided Walks.  For more details of the programme click here:

List of All Guided Walks.

I have a large repertory of walks, tours, and lectures  in my backpack.   I mostly give them for two excellent organisations. London Walks, and Road Scholar.

Road Scholar Programmes

My next study tour for Road Scholar is …. Well who knows, (hopefully Sept 2021) but ? Once upon a safe time in the summer I gave a programme  called ‘London’s Neighbourhoods‘  which is a great short tour of London with a day in the East End taking in the Street Art, a Day in the City, Greenwich and Bermondsey.

Also, I led  one called ‘Quintessential Britain’ which takes in London, Oxford, Bath, Stonehenge, Cotswold, Chester, Wales, Haworth, York, Edinburgh and other places en route.

A complete list of my repertory of walks. lectures, study tours can be found here:

In researching my Prehistoric Virtual Walk (Sunday 25/04/21 Details) I came across many great sites of interest. Here are a few Barn Elms – London’s Oppidum? This is a lecture by Alex Barnes – only 15 minutes, long and about a site in South West London that just might be an important Iron Age centre …
