Key Stage 5 | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors, Crime and Punishment | Session Type: Depth study
The reign of King Henry VIII saw cataclysmic changes for both church and nation. As a palace, a prison and a place of execution the Tower of London played a crucial role in re-shaping Henry VIII's England.
Students will analyse physical and documentary evidence to consider the role of the Tower as a reflection of both the domination and destabilisation of Henry VIII throughout his reign.
From economic strife to religious unrest, the varied functions of Henry’s Tower allow students to evaluate this complex Tudor king.
