How Animals Shaped Georgian London

Dr Thomas Almeroth-Williams is a Research Associate of the University of York’s Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies and a Research Communications Manager at the University of Cambridge. In addition to human–animal interactions, his main interests lie in urban life and the world of work in Georgian Britain.

In his contribution to the Research Exchange, he discusses his hope of bringing animal history firmly into the realm of social history with his new book ‘City of Beasts: How animals shaped Georgian London’ (Manchester University Press, 2019).
