A simple and dramatic introduction to the Great Fire of London in 1666 - what caused it, how it spread, how it was put out and how the city was rebuilt. Colourful illustrations on every page help bring history to life, along with maps and photographs of historical evidence and simple informative text. Ideal for homework and school projects - the Great Fire of London is now a compulsory National Curriculum topic for history at Key Stage 2.
