Watch an antique fire engine rise from the ashes

2016 marks 350 years since one of the greatest and most infamous disasters in London's history: the Great Fire of 1666. As part of the commemorations, the Museum of London spent over a year rebuilding a 17th century fire engine, one of the oldest surviving in the world. You can see the finished engine on display in our Fire! Fire! exhibition. Watch a large wooden cask be transformed back into a working engine from the time of the Great Fire.
