The Norman Tower of London

Begun in 1075-9, William the Conqueror's stone tower was so impressive that the castle is still called the Tower today. He built the fortress on the river in the south east of the ancient Roman city to control Londoners and deter invaders.
His son, William Rufus, completed the tower by 1100. His fortress and royal residence dominated the city and demonstrated the Norman dynasty's lordship over the land. The tower was protected on two sides by the Roman wall. A new ditch, an earthwork and a timber rampart were built to surround the north and west sides.
