17th Century London in 3D

Google Earth's Street View, 3D imagery, and historical imagery is good for showing students what London looked like in the 20th Century and today. But if you want to show students what London looked like in the 17th Century you'er going to have to go looking for some historical maps and drawings. Or you could show them this award-winning animated tour of 17th Century London. Pudding Lane Productions created the three and one half minute video tour to show viewers what London may have looked like prior to the Great Fire. The tour is based upon historical drawings and maps that the Pudding Lane Productions team researched. The video is embedded below.
