The London Stone is a historic piece of limestone currently located on Cannon Street in the city of London. In the Stoneheart Trilogy, it is the force that has put a curse upon several people in the city, such as the Walker. It also seems to watch over the balance between spits and taints, as well as the relationship between makers and made. When George accidentally misuses his gift as a maker, the Stone sends him into the un-London.
HistoryEditThere is little known about the origins of the London Stone. It may have served as a milestone used by the ancient Romans. The first record of its existence in the city is thought to have been made by John Stow in his Survey of London, published in 1598.
The Stone may have been damaged during the Great Fire of London. It was moved around Cannon Street several times in history.
