4)T of L (K) (H) (I)

Reveals about attitudes, values,/significance of physical features/questions

What does the site tell us about life, values and attitudes during the Medieval period? Dangerous, time of conflict/war. Monarchy = powerful + wealthy. Want to project wealth and power. Tells us it's a religious time as chapel in Wakefield Tower (Henry III)
What does the site tell us about life, values and attitudes during the Early Modern period? More relaxed monarchy - safer times. Monarchs more concerned about comfort than safety (Hampton Court Palace). No new defences built. Prison reflects religious problems - Henry VIII's changes to church
What does the site tell us about life, values and attitudes during the Industrial period? Rise in tourism (medievalisation - Anthony Salvin). Industrial revolution = more wealth, free time, access to transport, interest in past. Barracks, reflects big empire, need for big army
What does the site tell us about life, values and attitudes during the Modern period? Tourism reflects greater wealth and free time, for majority of people. Benefits (Welfare State) for poor. Foreign visitors reflects improved transport. Education - importance of History as a subject (not just in school). Conservation, UNSECO 1988.
Whats the most important feature of the T of L? White Tower. Original, most important then and now. UNESCO "Best surviving Norman Tower in Europe". Symbol of last successful invasion of England
What about the curtain walls (Hen III + Ed I)? Shows development of tower - adds to 'story' of the Tower, no other complete examples of Norman/Medieval concentric castle. London, capital city, helps define English history. A symbol of the nation
What about medievalisation? By Salvin -Turning point from practical use to tourist site
What was the Industrial attitude to looking after the tower? Medievalisation, rebuilding parts of castle to make it look original. Lose changes made by tower, corrupting the 'story' of the tower. Makes it look nice, attracting tourists
What was the Modern attitude to looking after the tower? Opposite of Industrial. Preserve, don't replace. Keep Tower 'warts and all', to undersrand the story and development of the tower
