Key Stage 5 | Subject: History | Topics: Tudors, Crime and Punishment | Session Type: Depth Study
Succession for the taking? The Mid-Tudor period saw the stability of the monarchy and its future legacies thrown into question.
In this session, students will analyse the Tower buildings and documentary evidence to explore the Tower’s use by Tudor monarchs as a symbol of fear and power during this turbulent period.
Through the prisoners who have left their marks on the buildings of the Tower itself, students will consider how the Tower can be used to evaluate the Mid-Tudor period and its fluctuating political landscape.
This study day will also include a session on using portraiture as historical evidence at the National Portrait Gallery.
