A team of six students from De Montfort University taking part in the Crytek Off the Map project  have built a 3D representation of 17th century London before The Great Fire of 1666. Whilst it is conjectural, they have used street maps of the time and details from contemporary documents like Samuel Pepys’ diary to make it as accurate as possible. It’s a fascinating clip and also very useful for helping to visualise the London of the Great Plague in 1665.
