About this session

A-Level | Subject: History | Topics: Stuarts, War and Conflict | Session Type: Depth Study

As a fortress, palace and prison, the Tower of London has been the centre of many key moments in history.

Using relevant buildings on-site, students will investigate some of the key individuals and events of the Angevin period and will use the Tower of London as a case study to consider how the fortress can aid their understanding of the turbulent years of the Angevin period.

The workshop includes a short lecture and a subject specific tour of the Tower of London.
