St. Paul's & The Museum of London: London Before 1700

We will go early to the Museum of Londone we will get to see the Cheapside Hoard, a cache of early 17th Century jewelry that was discovered in a wall where the jeweler/pawnbroker left it. It shows the normal stock of a pawnshop or jeweler in the reign of James I, with lots of Elizabethan style waist belts and neck chains. This museum also has bits of Royal dress, theatrical costumes, and the dress of ordinary Londoners from an assortment of periods. When the school tours become too numerous, we can walk to nearby St. Paul’s Cathedral, by Christopher Wren, where historic notables are buried in elaborately sculpted tombs.
