Is there a key-binding to go back a page in the eww web browser?

I can't find a page which lists all the key bindings.

You can go back with l (which is bound to eww-back-url). As with any major mode, you can get an overview of available keybindings by typing C-h m in a eww buffer.

The keybinding l is meant to be familiar to Emacs users, as it's also used in the info browser (where it runs Info-history-back).
