Animal guided walk
Animal Pasts in London’s Landscape Today
In September, (Saturday 29th at 2pm) )I will be leading a guided walk around Smithfield, the City borders and Holborn with an emphasis on non-human animals, images of them and people who have taken an interest in animal welfare and rights.
Alongside our human ancestors animals have created the physical and cultural landscape of London as it exists today. In this walk of c. 2 hours we will look at traces left by cattle, horses, dogs and cats – and their human companions. Skirting the city, this walk will offer a different way of seeing London.
Start: Barbican tube station 2pm. (Finish: Russell Square tube)
It is organised by the London Metropolitan Archives. You will need to book through the LMA. or ring them 020 7332 3851
