The Great Fire of London swept through the city 350 years ago this September, destroying around 80 percent of the original city.

To mark the anniversary the Museum of London are offering free lunchtime lectures about the Great Fire. The drop-in sessions will be held on the first Wednesday of the month, from July 2016 until April 2017.

These fascinating lectures will be delivered by academics, archaeologists, authors and experts. They will delve into the damage to the city and how London was reborn. From examining the fire's impact on everyday Londoners, this lecture series provides an in-depth understanding of the fateful days of September 1666 and their aftermath.
