Product code: BK536
THE TOWN BELOW THE GROUND: Edinburgh's Legendary Underground City - For almost 250 years Edinburgh was surrounded by a giant defensive wall. Unable to expand its boundaries, it became the most densely populated city in Europe. An underground slum developed which existed for over 350 years. Trapped in lives of poverty and crime, these subterranean dwellers lived in darkness and misery, ignored by chroniclers of the time. This is the first book to chronicle fully Edinburgh's secret city: its history and structure; the amazing tales, both ancient and modern, that made it legendary.
