          Sinopsis
          Medieval London is a historical account of the England's capital during the Middle Ages, written by Sir Walter Besant, English novelist and historian who dedicated most of his life researching history and topography of London. The work is divided in three parts: first part is historical and it deals with mediaeval sovereigns of England and their treatment of the city; second part presents general view of London, dealing with social life, customs, tradition, and other aspect of city life such as trade, crime, literature or sports. Final part of the work is ecclesiastical and deals with religion, religious houses and objects of faith that signified the capital of England in the Middle Ages.
          Acerca de Walter Besant

          Walter Besant’s life (1836-1901) almost exactly coincided with Queen Victoria’s reign (1837-1901) and embodied many of its central preoccupations. As a popular writer of novels, such as All Sorts and Conditions of Men (1882), and a philanthropist who championed the urban poor and the rights of authors, this English writer appealed both to the Victorians’ taste for fiction and their zeal for reform. He also spoke to his country’s imperial interest in remote places, notably as secretary of the Palestine Exploration Fund (1864-1886). In this capacity, Besant became friends with Edward Henry Palmer (1840-1882), Cambridge professor of Arabic, prominent Orientalist, and martyr to empire when he was killed on a government mission to Egypt.
