A-Level | Subject: History | Topics: Medieval, War and Conflict | Session Type: Depth Study
While the Wars of the Roses raged, the Tower of London was used as a symbol of legitimate rule.
Both Yorkists and Lancastrians were imprisoned and killed within its walls. With this in mind, students will examine the Tower buildings and documentary evidence to consider how the fortress can help support their understanding of the Wars of the Roses and the reign of Henry VII.
The workshop includes a short lecture and a subject specific tour of the Tower of London.
