“People have been to drawn to the area…because of its topography, its wide open spaces.” Kate Sumnall, Curator and Community Archaeologist, Museum of London.

In the second part of our Smithfield film series we learn about the religious and medical importance of the area once known as ‘Smoothfield’ as well as some of the more bloody events such as public executions and the slaughter of animals for sale.
