London Borough of Southwark
|London Borough of Southwark|
The London Borough of Southwark [ ˈsʌðək ] is a borough of London . It is just south of the City of London , south of the Thames. The population in 2008 was composed of 68.8% white, 20.8% black, 9.5% Asian and 2.9% Chinese. Southwark's twin town is Langenhagen .
The district was created in 1965 with the establishment of Greater London from the Metropolitan Borough of Bermondsey , the Metropolitan Borough of Camberwell and the Metropolitan Borough of Southwark in the former County of London .
South of the London Bridge was a substantial suburb of ancient London . Excavations uncovered various buildings richly decorated with mosaics and wall paintings. A temple precinct was found with an inscription that mentions "Londoners" for the first time.
In ancient times, Southwark also had Roman burial grounds.
Traditionally, Southwark, just outside the gates, was the area in which "notorious" businesses settled. Until the Middle Ages, Southwark consisted of several islands, but they silted up more and more. These islands were already settled in the early Neolithic, as is shown by finds from Hopton Street. Southwark was the starting point for the pilgrimage to Canterbury described in Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales .
On March 25, 2013, the Newington Library and Cuming Museum burned . The library and museum tell the story of the district. The terrorist attack in London on June 3, 2017 took place in Borough Market .
