Tower green - the scaffold site This is where Henry VIII had wives Anne Boleyn, Katheryn Howard, and many others executed. Lady Jane Grey was executed on this spot as well, and their bodies are buried under the altar of the church pictured here, the Chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula.
Henry VIII's toilet....I was just in the Tower of London and saw this....I read that when it was in use it emptied into the moat where the royal stash of fish was kept for lent.... One of the many reasons I'm glad to live today!
The bible of Elizabeth Ist, 1583 The most decorative, and in many ways the finest, of all the remaining embroidered books of the time of Elizabeth is now at the Bodleian Library at Oxford. It is one of the 'Francis Douce' Bibles, printed in London in 1583 and probably bound about the same time. It was the property of the Queen herself, and is bound in crimson velvet, measuring 42,5 by 30 cm
Resting place of Anne Boleyn. (After she was beheaded, her body and head were dumped into an arrow box, and place in this unmarked spot. It wasn't until the 19th century when her remains were found again.)
