London churns with the industry of man, constantly building and rebuilding, expanding outwards while dismantling and reforming its core. Underneath the powerhouse of the City lie millennia of history, from the celebrated and well-documented paths of Roman Londinium to darker antediluvian secrets veiled from modern eyes.
London sits atop its history: an ancient swampland that was itself once an even-more-ancient sea-bed. Who knows what secrets lie buried? London is the beating heart of a global empire, drawing and pumping the blood of materials and labour from its colonial holdings, to further the ends of its aristocratic and mercantile elites. Within walking distance of each other is fantastic wealth and abject poverty. Glittering high society and the slums of the East End. Constant activity and pursuit of wealth make for a churning maelstrom of humanity – plenty of chaos for those of a strong will to exploit or to act as cover for those whose goals are yet more sinister.
