This chapter examines the extensive manufacturing activities of medieval London: in particular cloth-working of all kinds, leather working, tailoring, and metalworking, especially the manufacture of pewter goods and high-quality gold and silver objects. It considers the key role played by Londoners in distributing throughout England their own manufactured goods as well as the numerous imported wares brought to the city, and also the process whereby the buying and selling of goods moved away from the great fairs into permanent shops in towns, especially in London.

Keywords:   London, manufacturing, cloth-working, pewter, gold, silver, fairs, shops
