In February 1715, a skull was found on a dung-heap. As this gruesome compendium makes clear, Georgian London was a dangerous place. Arranged calendar-wise and illustrated with more than 100 contemporary prints, it offers grisly goings-on for every day of the year: murders, hangings, dismemberments, burnings - and a Fleet Street resident who fell into a sausage grinder.
