Video of the Day – 2/25/13 (The (Secret) City of London)

Daily Video — The (Secret) City of London

I was astounded by today’s video and the history tidbits I picked up!  I never knew that there was a “secret”, autonomous City of London within the city of London!! (Note the capitalization, it’s important.)  Learn about this small city within a city , how it came to be, and how it remains independent even to this day.
