The Tudors / The Tower of London

I have always been fascinated by the Tower and am very curious about its origin and purpose. We do not have a thread on the Tower yet and I would be delighted to hear people's accounts and comments.
 
When was the Tower built, and why?

Why were people sent there?

What were the traditions surrounding the Tower?

The Tudors / John Dee and Astrology

I am a huge fan of astrology and am interested in astrology during the 16th century. I figured I would start this thread because astrology played an interesting part in decision making and was part of the academic elite.

Also, I think John Dee deserves a place in our Tudor discussions  ;)





Here are some websites to get aquainted with John Dee and astrology:

All comments are welcome.

I would enjoy reading other educated responses on King Henry VIII of England. Did he suffer from mental illness or was he a mean tyrant whose only desire was to have a son?
