Description - The White Tower by Edward Impey

The White Tower-the gigantic structure at the heart of the building complex known as the Tower of London-gave that famed landmark its name. One of the most celebrated buildings of the London cityscape for nearly 1000 years, it is also the most complete eleventh-century palace in Europe. This book is a complete architectural, archaeological and historical study of White Tower and its context. Edward Impey and other distinguished experts integrate the most recent archaeological evidence with documentary research in order to trace the building's structural development, its original and subsequent functions, and its architectural and historical significance. The book will be an important resource for scholars of European Romanesque castle architecture.
