Osprey Landmarks in History : The Tower of London : A 2000 Year History

The Tower of London is one of the most famous and well-visited landmarks in the world. The history of the Tower of London began long before William of Normandy constructed the famous White Tower in the 11th century as a symbol of his power as Conqueror. The land was an important tactical site since pre-Roman times, but its history has always been turbulent and bloody. Fourteen specially commissioned paintings by the renowned historical reconstruction artist, Ivan Lapper show the Tower from its earliest pre-Roman days, right up to the start of this new millennium. The changing life of the Tower is revealed in a compelling and exciting narrative by the Royal Armouries official Keeper of Tower History, Geoffrey Parnell, combining to create the definitive illustrated history of the Tower of London bringing the sights, sounds, events and characters of the past to life.
