Driving Through Old London (1950’s)

The etymology of London is uncertain. It is an ancient name, found in sources from the 2nd century. It is recorded c.121 as Londinium, which points to Romano-British origin,and hand-written Roman tablets recovered in the city from AD65/70-80 include the word Londinio (“in London”).The earliest attempted explanation, now disregarded, is attributed to Geoffrey of Monmouth in Historia Regum Britanniae.This had it that the name originated from a supposed King Lud, who had allegedly taken over the city and named it Kaerlud.
