Summary note:
Religious strife, civil conflict, waves of immigration, the rise and fall of industry, great prosperity and grinding poverty - the handful of streets that constitute modern Spitalfields have witnessed all this and much more. Now long-time Spitalfields resident Dan Cruickshank tells the story of his neighbourhood, from Roman times to the present day, explaining how its streets evolved, what people have lived there, and what lives they have led.
