The Tower is the documentary series which tells the history of the 900 year old Tower of London. Also known as Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress, the historic tower was built in 1078, on the north bank of the River Thames. The castle was built by William the Conqueror, and became a symbol of oppression, showing the power of the new rule in London. The architectural wonder has been a royal residence, a prison, an armoury, treasury and much more over the history. Playing a prominent role in English history, the Tower has been besieged numerous times, as controlling it was key to controlling the country as a whole.
