“Health and the Urban Environment"
Professor Vanessa Harding works on the history of medieval and early modern London, and is particularly interested in the interaction of social life and physical environment. She has published on a number of aspects of this, such as population and urban growth, gardens and open space, markets, bridges, and London's archaeology. For some time Vanessa’s research focused on the history of death and burial in a metropolitan context, concentrating on the early modern period, leading to the publication of several articles and a monograph study, The dead and the living in London and Paris, 1500-1670 (Cambridge, 2002).
