Tales From the TowerBook - 2006
Since William the Conqueror designed it nearly 1,000 years ago, the Tower of London has spurred not only historic events but a wealth of myths, misconceptions, secrets, and superstitions. Featuring references from such luminaries as Sir Thomas More, Shakespeare, and Gilbert and Sullivan, this fascinating tribute takes a tour through the Tower's gory, glorious, and sometimes glamorous history. It answers such intriguing questions as: What really happened to the little princes who were imprisoned there? Who was the most famous person to be tortured in its vast space? And what could happen if the ravens that live there were forced to leave--and why can't they fly away?
