Historic Greenwich and the Royal Park (Part 1)

By NEILMUIR1
June 19, 2010

Greenwich has more history than most people could research in their lifetime. From stone age tools found in Greenwich, the Romans in AD43, the Saxons settlement in the 10th century, to the Danes who in 1011 kidnapped Archbishop Alfege for a ransom, it is an amazing place. When the ransom was not paid, he was murdered and St. Alfege's Church stands in Greenwich to this day! Many of the things in Greenwich the tourists don't see, as they simply don't know about them.

Wonderful and delightfully thorough tour of one of your country's treasures. I really appreciate all the hard work that went into documenting the photos and noting the history behind them, along with your commitment to sharing this beauty with readers who don't care to travel. Thank you, Neil.
