Debates & Study Days

Tower talk

Explore contemporary issues through the lens of the Tower of London and ask;
have we learnt our lessons from history,
or will we repeat the mistakes of the past?

Study Day

Women in Armour

Saturday 22 April

Throughout history, from Queen Elizabeth I to Georgian prize fighters, Wild West sharp shooters to Suffragette jujitsu bodyguards, women have engaged in combat.

Run in collaboration with the Royal Armouries, this Deadlier than the Mail: Women in Armour study day will celebrate amazing female fighters, and include a chance to get hands on with historic arms and armour.
