In partnership with the Royal Armouries
A-Level | Subject: History | Topics: Stuarts, War and Conflict | Session Type: Depth Study
Charles I's reign ushered a long and bloody civil war between the King and Parliament. Once again the Tower was one of the King's most important assets.
Londoners feared Charles I would use it to dominate them but, in the end, the Tower was won by the Parliamentarians and it remained in their hands for the entire Civil War.
Students will examine the Tower buildings and documentary evidence to consider how the Tower of London might be used to support their understanding of the Civil War.
The workshop includes a short lecture and a subject specific tour of the Tower of London.
