In Foundation, the chronicler of London and of its river the Thames, takes us from the primeval forests of England's prehistory to the death, in 1509, of the first Tudor kind, Henry VII. With his extraordinary skill for evoking time and place and his acute eye for the telling detail, Peter Ackroyd recounts the familiar story of warring kinds, of civil strife and foreign wars. But he also gives us a vivid sense of how our forebears really lived, bringing them to life in characteristically rich prose.
