Archaeologists uncover lost Tiltyard Towers at Hampton Court Palace
Archaeologists working at Hampton Court Palace have solved a mystery that has been puzzling historians for decades. The team has, for the first time, unearthed the remains of one of the Palace's lost Tiltyard Towers, which were built at the height of King Henry VIII’s reign in the 1530s. The five famous towers were among the earliest banqueting houses built in England, and once stood within the walled Tiltyard where Tudor monarchs held jousts and tournaments.
