My knowledge of Restoration London is over-scant by my own lights, something I fully intend to put right in the future. Wren, Hooke, Newton, Hawksmoor, Dryden, Sheridan, Evelyn… such a rich vein… and on, and on … and Pepys. There is a web site I rather enjoy that it totally devoted to Pepys’s diary. I can’t really list it on the Roundup because I think it is a “proper” web site rather than a blog and is in Pepys’s own words: Samuel Pepys’s Blog from Beyond the Grave, so to speak. Anyway, I’ve added it to the blog roll. The Diary of Samuel Pepys.
