"King of the Castle"

I travelled to London earlier this year to attend my grandmother's funeral. Back home I leafed through the travel and family bits and pieces I'd collected, concious of my British roots. As a child my mother would talk about the history of Britain with great excitement. This "King of the Castle" series is based on images and text about the grim history of the Tower of London, often whimsically recorded in illuminated manuscripts.
