Amazing: Fly through 17th Century London

Just breathtaking. A project by a bunch of students at De Montford University recreates the streets of our capital centred on the old city around Pudding Lane, prior to the Great Fire. The students have based many of the buildings on conjecture using what we know from drawings and paintings but have also used actual street plans and the names of pubs we know existed. That, and the evocative soundtrack, creates what for me is a very profound reminder of why London really is the best capital city on Earth. Enjoy.
