A bit out of scope but an interesting story about a group of tourists from the far future visiting the ancient ruins of London in a manner reminiscent of Edwardian visitors to Greek and Roman archeological sites. I was enchanted by the description of Southwark (then known as ‘Suthuk’) most of which “is now reclaimed land planted with cabbages”.
