9781858941066: The Tower of London: Official Illustrated History

An up-to-date history of one of the most visited monuments in the world that includes evidence from the most recent archaeological investigations and research. Many superb colour photographs illustrate the site's development from its first use as a fortified position in Roman London, to its construction and expansion into a major royal palace. The Tower's function constantly changed and adapted during its lengthy life as exhibited by its use as a mint, prison, zoo, Record Office, military hospital, repository for the Crown jewels and museum. Each section contains many fascinating snippets of information, plans and charts which vividly bring the structures and personalities of the Tower to life.
