Looking back at the History of England's capital from before the Romans arrived right up to the present day.
Before the Romans arrived some 2000 years ago there is no evidence of London existing as any sort of thriving town or village.
The Saxons chose Winchester just north of present day Southampton as their base.
It was not until some 200 years after the departure of the Romans (about AD 670) that the London area was reoccupied (by the Saxons) to any effective level and it was in a new area around present day Charing Cross and Trafalgar Square that was to be their base for their new city and port.
Starting in the west at present day Blackfriars Bridge walk north only about 200 yards to "Ludgate" (now Ludgate circus).
Saxon King Alfred, with headquarters in Winchester, was the only Anglo Saxon ruler to survive. In 886 he finally made some use of the old (400 years old) Roman defences and remade London between Blackfriars and the Tower as a fortified town.
The next 100 years saw many changes in London which stood at the hub of the three divisions of England.
The remainder of eastern and northern England was ruled by the Danish Vikings.
That is commencing in London, east of the river Lea and Lea Marshes and running north south through present day Wathamstow. This was a relatively stable division as the Saxon rulers in London persuaded the Danish Vikings to stay in their allocated territory in return for a regular monthly income of silver pennies minted in London.
