Established at the heart of England’s principal fortress, the Royal Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula held its first service 500 years ago and belies a history of the site that has been over 1000 years in the making.
Alfred Hawkins, Assistant Historic Buildings Curator at HM Tower of London, has researched the architectural history of this extraordinary Royal Peculiar extensively, overseeing recent archaeological investigations that have contributed to the fascinating story of how this site has evolved.
Through these investigations, new information has shed light on the forgotten history which shaped the construction of the Chapel Royal of St Peter ad Vincula as we know it. This history, alongside the 500 years of worship and architectural development within the current chapel, will be discussed during this talk.
