PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Middle Ages: The Great Fire of London. All the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

London was a disaster waiting to happen. In 1666, the city was a city of medieval houses made mostly of oak timber. Some of the poorer houses had walls covered with tar, which kept out the rain but made the structures more vulnerable to fire.

Streets were narrow, houses were crowded together, and the firefighting methods of the day consisted of neighborhood bucket brigades armed with pails of water and primitive hand pumps.
Citizens were instructed to check their homes for possible dangers, but there were many instances of carelessness.

Within days King Charles II set about rebuilding his capital. This task was given to Sir Christopher Wren.
To prevent future fires, most new houses were built of brick or stone and separated by thicker walls. Narrow alleyways were forbidden and streets were made wider. Permanent fire departments, did not become a fixture in London until well into the 18th century.

The presentation covers the following:

Disaster Awaiting
Fire Breaks Out
Cause of the Fire
Fire Spreads
King Charles II
Citizens Flee
Fear of Spreading
Fire Burns Out

Rebuilding the City
Memorial
