Description of A-Z of Greenwich

The historic Royal Borough of Greenwich is well known for its magnificent maritime, military and civil architecture, ancient royal park, ship and boat building, and pioneering developments in scientific discovery, light industry and manufacturing. Its streets stretch out across the Meridian Line and show how Greenwich evolved into a working-class suburb of London, where a workforce of several thousand was employed in the many industries located along the riverside and across Greenwich Marsh, where the bodies of river pirates were once hung in chains. With stories of Greenwich's remarkable history and heritage encompassing the martyrdom of St Alphege by Viking raiders, the birth and death of celebrated kings and queens, the heroic exploits of famous generals and sea captains, bold military and naval actions, and the many amazing scientific and industrial inventions and innovations that placed Greenwich on the international time zone map, David Ramzan navigates the reader through this A to Z, discovering the places, people and events that have brought fame and fortune to Greenwich.
