In partnership with London Metropolitan Archives
Updated 20 July. The Tower of London is now open Wednesday - Sunday. All outdoor areas of the Tower of London are open, as well as the Crown Jewels and the White Tower. All other buildings remain closed. We hope to see you soon.
Key Stage 5 | Subject: History | Topics: Medieval, War and Conflict | Session Type: Depth Study
Does the loss of the Tower mean the loss of the country? In this session students will question how the Angevin Kings of England used the Tower of London to assert and consolidate their power.
Using the physical evidence of the medieval structures and a range of written evidence, students will investigate some of the key individuals and events of the Angevin period.
Through the use of the Tower of London as a case study, students will analyse how the fortress can aid their understanding of the turbulent years of the Angevin period.
This study day will also include a session on using contemporary documents from the period at the London Metropolitan Archives.
