Secrets of the Tower of London


I recall visiting the Tower of London many years ago on one of my many trips south to London from Scotland, where I was stationed on a U.S. Navy tugboat at the American nuclear submarine base at Holy Loch.

The Tower was a fascinating place, rich in history and mystery, so I was interested in reading Alex Schecher's piece on the Tower, which appeared at Smithsonianmag.com

You can read the piece via the below link:

  1. Thank you for the link and reminding me of The Tower. So many great and terrible stories are linked to The Tower. One of my favorites: what really happened to the two heirs to the throne sent to The Tower by Richard III? The mystery lingers!
