I enjoyed this session #3 of 4 that brought listeners through the wondrous construction of awesome churches, great houses/estates, and the expansion of London both toward the east (docks) and west (more parks, squares, and Westminster). Learned more about the influences of Inigo Jones and Christopher Wren. Don Brown related how the Great Fire of 1666 and the plague (around that time) impacted the regrowth of the city. It was a jam-packed 200 years discussed in an hour and a half -- always maintaining interest! Maps were excellent and photos of current views of grand houses splendid. He offered many resources that will add to his content.
I have found Don brown to be a very good conversationalist. His knowledge if very deep and he is totally engaged in the subject matter. The course is fascinating.
A fascinating, well-organized conversation

Don Brown continued his excellent summary of the historical development of London after 1066 Battle of Hastings. It was fascinating to learn how some key constructions came about and by whom-- London's wall, St Paul's Cathedral, London Bridge, Tower of London. The description of who ruled what was enlightening. I enjoy his animated presentation and visuals which enhance understanding.
