The Chapel Royal and Royal Peculiar of Saint Peter ad Vincula or ‘Saint Peter in Chains’ is located within the Inner Ward of the Tower of London World Heritage Site. Constructed in 1520, this working chapel serves the spiritual needs of the Tower community and is best known as the resting place of three queens of England and two catholic saints: Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard, Lady Jane Grey, St. John Fisher and St Thomas More.

This talk observes the history of the chapel at the Tower, which can be traced to the 9th century, and discusses recent archaeological excavations which have unearthed new evidence concerning its development and use as the spiritual heart of England’s most famous fortress.

Alfred Hawkins is Assistant Curator of Historic Buildings at HM Tower of London and the Banqueting House, Whitehall which are cared for and operated by Historic Royal Palaces.
