The Stones of London: A History in Twelve Buildings, By Leo Hollis

London's history has been told by countless authors. Its biography has been written and rewritten. Its criminal underbelly has been scoured, its subterranean landscape crawled through and its transport systems charted. Its mad have been placed on the couch, its poor pored over and its rich laid bare. So, even for a history fan with a taste for the place, it takes a clever theme or a neat gimmick to make yet another account of the capital's past seem appealing. Leo Hollis's is to explore London's history through 12 buildings.

My Secret Life: Hugh Bonneville, actor, 47

My parents were... and are fantastic role models. They met at St Mary's medical school. After they married, my mother gave up nursing to be a mum, dad went on to be a surgeon.

Welcome to the captain's cabin: 'A life on the ocean wave provided inspiration for our family home'

Come up to the roof of the erstwhile pub I bought and renovated with my husband, Olly Hoeben, 11 years ago, and you will see his dream of 50 years made real. Around the flat, decked roof with its expansive views of London, and a sky that seems so close you could touch it, are three timber, glass and lead units, precisely designed to look and feel like ships' cabins. But why cabins at the top of an urban building? The reason is found in Olly's formative teenage years. Aged 15, he went to sea as a trainee able seaman. It was what many working-class lads, growing up in Amsterdam in the poverty-stricken years immediately after the war, did to earn a living.

Giant Shard looms over old St Paul's

The Shard skyscraper now being constructed looms over St Paul's Cathedral, seemingly dwarfing the traditional view of London's skyline that St Paul's has dominated since it was built by Sir Christopher Wren in 1710.
