"Inconvenient Picture" reveals TRUTH about Tower of LONDON

599 ratings | 27590 views
At least one of the back towers was added in later times. The Normans repaired and added to a heavily damaged Roman Tower which was built between 250AD and about 300AD, reflecting its late Roman design. Look at this quote I just found in Gildas, regarding towers built in Southern England! I am unsure if it actually relates to the Roman Tower of London... but it would seem that preventing ships sailing up the Thames would resist a Barbarian attack! "18... The Romans, therefore, left the country, giving notice that they could no longer be harassed by such laborious expeditions, nor suffer the Roman standards, with so large and brave an army, to be worn out by sea and land by fighting against these un-warlike, plundering vagabonds; but that the islanders, inuring themselves to warlike weapons, and bravely fighting, should valiantly protect their country, their property, wives and children, and, what is dearer than these, their liberty and lives; that they should not suffer their hands to be tied behind their backs by a nation which, unless they were enervated by idleness and sloth, was not more powerful than themselves, but that they should arm those hands with buckler, sword, and spear, ready for the field of battle; and, because they thought this also of advantage to the people they were about to leave, they, with the help of the miserable natives, built a wall different from the former, by public and private contributions, and of the same structure as walls generally, extending in a straight line from sea to sea, between some cities, which, from fear of their enemies, had there by chance been built. They then give energetic counsel to the timorous natives, and leave them patterns by which to manufacture arms. Moreover, on the south coast where their vessels lay, as there was some apprehension lest the barbarians might land, they erected towers at stated intervals, commanding a prospect of the sea; and then left the island never to return." http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/1949/pg1949-images.html This sounds a lot like Rome in the time of Aetius, in the 450s. Rome had lost Africa to the Vandals a generation or so earlier and was struggling to maintain the remainder against a horde of barbarians with a much reduced income (only 40,000 pounds of gold per annum), which could only maintain an army at maximum of 30,000 soldiers, far too small. Even so 2/3 of its annual income was required for this! By this stage, the Roman emperor only wished to reside in Ravenna, not liking the squalor of Rome. I believe the tower possibly went up in the late 200s or the 300s, at about the same time the walls around Chichester. Any later and the Romano-British would have had to have built it for themselves and I am unsure if the economy would have been powerful enough for such an endeavour. In addition there was a building there called the Arx Palatina. (Palatine Fortress). There was another Arx Palatina on the other side of Londonium on the river bank, where Blackfriars now is. I believe this was converted into Blackfriars Monastery but I would have to look into this further. Important links!

Bullshit again, The different colour stone means nothing, clue in the name "White Tower" being white washed most of it 's life. The Tower was altered try looking up Anthony Salvin, your making comments about a building that looks nothing like when it was first built, interesting, but not factual. You forgot Alien's, and area 51, for you know sod all about Norman architecture.

There is plenty of evidence of the actual building time period and even more which shows the Roman settlement that predates the Tower running from beside the White Tower all the way up to Tower Hill. Fake conspiracy theory. 0/10, try harder.

I found you points on the tower intriguing, given the picture on the coin, and it's late Roman looking architecture, adding to that its position, in the corner of the Roman fortifications. Certainly worth looking into. Also the church in Bradford on Avon. But the rest is dubious at best, and why, even if all this were true, would it mean there was a big catastrophe? Like most of your vids, some interesting, some dubious!

Adrian Gilbert (8 months ago)
I think you make some very good points. A lot of what is labelled 'Saxon' architecture in Britain is actually Romano-British.  Of course the Romans had a castle in London. But they didn't found London. It was already there when they arrived and called Trinovantum or 'New Troy'. You don't build a copy of Troy without a citadel do you. Where would you build it? On the Brynwen or 'White Hill', which is where Brutus the Trojan is supposed to be buried and where the White Tower stands now. So is the White Tower Norman? Easy to check: where did the stone come from to build it. If it is from Caen in Normandy, then you know they di. If it is from Britain itself, then the chances are that they didn't. I agree though that the cement is the real giveaway for a Roman construction. They really understood the medium of cement and concrete. Just look at Pevensey Castle.

But then I really started looking with a fresh perspective and now I'm left thinking you may be right, at least to a degree. Thanks for challenging my view of history, great video. The church inside The White Tower looks to be of a Byzantine design, Eastern Roman Empire. Very similar to some I've seen in Turkey and Cyprus.

I would further agree that this 3rd tower was built overtop and/or added later...add that if you look closely at the rockwork going up a few feet above the odd little window (on 3rd right side tower) you can almost see where the new rock was added and started.

An interesting video but there are some misconceptions about period architecture that lead the idea astray. If you are ever in the UK I'd be happy to take you round a few places. Firstly, 'Romanesque' was a style that was copied from the Romans and improved upon by both Saxon and Norman builders. The Romans also copied the Greeks, but that doesn't make half the buildings in Rome, Greek. Materials were routinely salvaged from earlier buildings, thus you can get the appearance of an earlier style, sometimes. The coins you highlight could well refer to other buildings or be merely stylised, or even made of wood - we would have no idea. The tower itself could have been influenced by a Roman building stll standing at that time either in Britain or in Europe, or even from Rome itself. That still makes it a contemporary copy, not a Roman building. Castles were functional buildings, so aesthetics and symmetry took second place to purpose (defence, imprisonment, govt etc). Buildings can be tentatively dated from archaeology around the foundations, or weathering of stonework. A good example of this would be Brixworth Church, Northamptonshire, England. This church LOOKS Roman, but archaeology shows that the foundations were begun in the 8th Century. The materials, and maybe even the design, were salvaged / copied from Roman buildings in nearby Leicester. You have miss-dated the West end of Ely Cathedral. Parts of that building were indeed started in the late 11th Century, as you say, but the West end you mention was made at least a hundred years later. Repairs / additions or rebuilding is usually easily seen, so if you see a plain, undisturbed wall or whatever, you can be confident (but not 100% certain) it has not been altered. Many churches and castles had extensions and demolitions of parts. You would often see an arch blocked in a wall if that is the case. There are countless examples in the UK, therefore dating a building from a just a photograph is problematic, as on the other side of the building may be the evidence of another date. THanks for the video though, I do like to see challenges to the 'known orthodoxy, As I say, if you are ever in the UK.....

Hi Charles, if you are looking for a date of the destruction of the tower of London prior to its rebuilding then i think you should historically investigate the comet of 562 ad..Britannia burned from 7-11 days straight and the country was devoid of all life for approximately 7 years following this catastrophe, Check Alan Wilson and Baram Blackett for a much more detailed forensic look at the hidden history of Britannia and the crime against humanity of deleting our rich tapestry of ancient history. I personally believe the education system was created to obfuscate our true place in history and to sell the lie that has been foisted upon the British and global populous Keep up the good work brother

The Normans built the tower of London on the east side of former londinium fortifications closer to the river the Romans built thier fort on the west side of there walls a Wikipedia search for londinium will explain better and it says the Roman fort had circular towers as a gate house and square towers on the corners

to the victors goes the spoils, as Rome fell, they left much of its empire to be claimed by others. you have many clues and I see your point. lets not forget that Rome was not built in a day. Take a look back in time and see that Rome has been built on its own Ruins. Take a look at the old pictures from the now underworld excavations they are doing in Rome. more clues... How about check out the Castles, many where added on to other pre-existing structures. it was not like today where the bulldozers and heavy machines can haul away the stones... So the questions are where are the Roman buildings?
O Comin (10 months ago)
I don't see any evidence of the application of 'Hermanutical Hygiene' to your research. Ely, as in its cathedral, is pronounced with a silent 'e' not 'i' Also, cathedrals across Europe were construction projects that spanned decades, sometimes many decades, so here, as in Ely, we see the transition from Norman to Gothic. The Normans copied Roman Architecture, of which the 1/2 round arch is a main feature, which was imported from Northern France, by the Normans.The Gothic Arch is a progression in design. Not here to write a dissertation on the subject, so please be mindful that this is worthy of such and cannot be addressed in a short video on YouTube. Another thing on the issue of symmetry, this as an architectural principle was peculiar to Pure Greek Architecture, NOT Roman! Now go and find out from an accedemic, what such a study would entail.

Romanesque design was prominent in Europe from around 900 AD to 1200 AD that fits in well with the date of construction of this building. Romanesque still persists today in church architecture like the very common basilica design of Catholic churches. I'm in South Korea and looking out my window at a Catholic church I watched being built 10 years ago in classic Roman basilica design. So what's your point anyway? So what if the Romans built the Tower of London the Normans later modified? You think you're right and the guide books wrong? It's about you being smarter than everybody? You have to say why this is important. It;s like saying "I know Cleopatra had blonde hair." So? Probably not true but what's your evidence and how does that change anything? By the way "Ely" is pronounced "Eelee" as in Ron Ely the actor who played Tarzan on TV in the 60's who is still with us at age 79 in 2017. Pretty much everybody knows this but you. I've listened to your poorly researched videos and you're not only ignorant but pretty annoying. I actually have a degree in Ancient Classical Art and Architecture so I know how wrong you are and lack real academic training to support your hypotheses. Stay in Australia mate. Maybe you can guess aliens built some ant hills or the Glass house mountains in Queensland near where I lived while working as a real Assistant Curator at the Queensland State Museum in Brisbane years ago. Stop the bullshit but I know you won't because you make money from click bait spreading misinformation.

There is a scene in Shakespeare's Richard III where Edward and Buckingham are discussing the Tower of London. Edward says "Did Julius Caesar build that place, my lord?" and Buckingham replies "He did, my gracious lord, begin that place; which, since, succeeding ages have re-edified."

Thanks, Doc. Shakespeare's quote suggests, to me at least, that in the mid 1500's it was not controversial to suppose that the Romans had started the Tower and that later generations had expanded upon it. I'm not sure why this idea has become controversial today.
Adrian Gilbert (8 months ago)
Buckingham was wrong. Julius Caesar was only in the London area for a few weeks (if that) in 54BC. He didn't have time to build anything. But London was already there when he arrived.

so if I went to another country and say a style of  architecture and like it then went home and built something in that style youre saying its obviously built by other people in a different time? so if I build a pyramid today, it must mean Egyptians came here and built it for me or it was built thousands of years ago? I'm not following your argument, whats your point?
Chris Lancaster (10 months ago)
Kudos, on the observation. I'm an American but very familiar with Roman history, building style's and architecture and yes I concur fully on that the tower of London is of Roman construction and modified or repaired by the Normans.

Why are you expecting symmetry from an early/high medieval castle? In these early castles you never get perfect symmetry, because when it came to fortifications, medieval people were functionalists. It's not really until later in the middle ages that you get fortifications that are meant to be visually stunning through symmetry, and usually they sacrifice some of their strength for it. A building like this would have been built in many campaigns, and during each campaign the fashions or preferences may have changed a little. Of course with these monumental building, the building process would have been a bit of a learning process too, reportedly the Tower of London was one of the very first big stone keeps, and so working out how best to configure the small details would have been something that came with experience. Not to mention that often a building like this may have two or more master-masons overseeing the project at different times. Even cathedrals from this time are never symmetrical, neither the facade nor the transepts, and almost always you'll find that the nave has a different style than the choir. Now, I have no vested interest in the date of the Tower of London, but there is nothing that I see in it's architecture that is particularly Roman and un-Norman, the very concept of a castle is in fact quite un-Roman, i.e. a palace that is simultaneously a fort. Your point about Ely cathedral is frankly ludicrous, since nobody (except you) is claiming that facade was build only 50 years after the Tower. That tower, and that porch you showed pictures of date to between the 13th and 14th centuries. Now, the earliest phase of building at Ely cathedral does indeed date to shortly after the Tower, and if you examine those earliest portions, you'll find architecture very similar to that of the Tower, although the Tower is somewhat cruder in it's details and decorations. Again with Winchester cathedral, construction did indeed start at the time of the building of the Tower, and the first phase ended some 14 years later, how ever since then much has been added and changed, and the picture you show is of the nave which was rebuild and redecorated under William of Wykeham in the 14th century. Again, if you were to examine the oldest surviving architecture in Winchester cathedral, e.g. the crypt, you'll find architecture very similar to that of the Tower. I like how you look at a structure, one which has obviously lost it's whitewashing and decorations, and conclude from the rough state it's currently in how old it is, just by your general feeling of things. You can not date buildings chronologically by how ruined they are. E.g. Coventry cathedral is not older than the Pantheon, just because the Pantheon is in a better state of preservation. Also, architecture is not necessarily a progression of simple to complex, e.g. just because the walls of the chapel in the Tower are plainer than some Roman architecture, does not mean that it's older than the Roman architecture. And I'd point out that in it's day the chapel would have been whitewashed, and the walls then adorned with murals, as was common to medieval church-buildings. I would also point out that just because the Tower seems to have been built in a short time, that does not mean that anyone's saying it's hasn't been substantially modified since.

Interesting video Charles and I agree with a lot of your ideas here. One thing that also backs your theory up to some extent is the enigmatic Roman Concrete. They built to last, inspired in my opinion by their interaction with a certain group of pyramid builders. Which is also where I think their concrete may have come from.

Continue to cling to the fake historic timeline and your ability to realize the truth about our humanity history - and the truth about the history of our Earth - will be impossible. Shall we imagine the 1% that has siphoned into their control over 99% of the world's wealth wants the public to know the true history of our Earth and of humankind? Shall we imagine the 1% that controls the publishing houses, the printing of schoolbooks and college textbooks wants the public to know the truth about chemistry, physics, geology, glaciology, etc.? If you want to get your head on straight, do a search for 1400's illustrations of Alexandria, Jerusalem, Damascus, Aden, Calcutta, London, etc., then do a search for 1500's illustrations of those villages, then the 1600's illustrations of those villages, then the 1700's illustrations, then the 1800's illustrations. If you arrange the illustrations of each of those villages in chronological order, you'll notice the residences inside the stone walls were increasing in number every 20 to 30 years as a result of the babies being born, growing up and having children of their own, then you can extrapolate the population backward in time for each of the villages. If that doesn't blow your mind, study the architecture in each of those illustrations. If that doesn't blow your mind, read the captain's logs going back hundreds of years. If that doesn't blow your mind, study the maps of the Antarctic Circle of the 1700's, 1800's and early 1900's, then study the illustrations and photographs from the early Antarctic expeditions, then study the video footage of Antarctica from the 1940's, 1950's and 1960's. Then you should be clued in to some significant truths about our Earth. Then you can do a search for illustrations of mountains in the 1400's, 1500's, 1600's, 1700's and 1800's and your mind should be more willing to see the evidence.

The steeple on the right tower is also different. It's much smaller and looks like it belonged to a different building.

The Romans kept records of everything....especially all the stuff they built....wonder if a person can look stuff up or view roman records..........

Hey Charles, this video perfectly explains the nubs on megalithic structures https://youtu.be/-HsswLyGJkM

Brilliant. Something always bothered me about the tower. You hit the nail on the head. I was always doubtful of the speed with which the Normans built the white tower, but enlarging an existing structure makes better sense especially considering all of the other crumbling Roman structures near at hand from which the Normans could have re used stones. This cannibalising Roman structures was a widespread practice especially in the North where tons of stones from Hadrian's wall can be found in farm houses, barns, walls and chapels all over the area. Incidentally Charles, the photo of the splendidly reconstructed Roman Fort Gate is not in Newcastle on Tyne which is in Northumberland on the north bank of the river Tyne, but is, in fact, in South Shields on the south bank of the Tyne and used to be part of County Durham. The fort is called Arbeia and is really worth a visit not only for the gate, but also the amazing reconstruction of the commandant's house which is fully furnished and has the fountain feature in the courtyard in situ exactly as placed 1,950 years ago. The museum has the oldest chain mail in the world. I was born and educated in this Roman town hence my interest in archaeology. As a 12 year old I took part in many digs with the local society who found me, as a very skinny boy, perfect for dangling by the ankles down dark holes clutching a torch while the adults yelled, " what can you see?' I love your work which challenges the intellectual laziness of just accepting the received wisdom and considering ancient matters sorted and closed. The wise historian should always allow room for new evidence requiring revision or reworking of accepted paradigms. Thank you so much Charles. Michael

Thank you Michael! Yep it is fun to look at all this old stuff and see where `they' went wrong, or don't point stuff out. Nice! Yep as soon as 'case closed' no-one wants to upset the cart!

Why don't you ask Alan Wilson and Barram Blackett...??   They'll tell you what went down in the 6th century.... may have possibly caused the damage...

I'd love to actually meet them. I used to follow their website, before all their bad luck started happening :(
