"Where did that baby come from?
And can we take it back?
It wails and squeaks.  Its diaper leaks.
It's an insomniac."

Did you know that London was once part of the Roman Empire?  Well, did you know that the Romans were the ones who founded London?  It's true.  Back a millennium ago, Britain was invaded by the Romans and it became part of the Roman Empire.  The Romans looked around for a good place to build a town and they decided on the piece of land that London now occupies.  This amusing guide to the history of London tells you all you need to know -- and then some -- about London.

SUBJECTS:     London -- Description.
                        London -- History.
