Start-Up History: The Great Fire of London Summary

Start-Up History: The Great Fire of London by Stewart Ross

The Great Fire of London in 1666 is one the most remembered events of British history. This book simply retells the events of the fire, from its start in Pudding Lane to the reconstruction of London by Christopher Wren when it was all over. It considers how the wooden houses of the time allowed the fire to spread and how we know what happened from eyewitness accounts such as in Samuel Pepys' diary.

Start-Up History is a series of 6 titles looking at everyday objects and events from their historical perspective and encourages readers to ask questions about what they can see on the page and how that might relate to their own experiences building skills and historical vocabulary. Perfect introductory history texts for 5-7 KS1 readers.
