London is one of the major cities of the world today, but it would not have existed without the River Thames. The river has acted as a source of fresh water, an artery of communication and transportation, and a physical and psychological boundary. Part of the river is tidal and this forms a natural harbour. Since pre-Roman times the river has been the major communication and trade route between Britain and the rest of the world. These stories, countless whimsical, idiosyncratic and tragic happenings, all make up a history of one of the most important rivers in the world.
