"history has written and has been told by the party who win the war," said the yeoman warder who became our guide tour in tower of london. he's one amongst those yeomen warders, provides the information for those who visit tower of london.

we do enjoy his explanation. including that statement which said by him in a quite funny way. ring you a bell? yes! i remember that from the monologue of braveheart --enchantingly performed by mel gibson ;)

but he then added with some fact. especially about traitor's gate. amongst the prisoners were --yes exactly-- william wallace and sir walter raleigh.

the way the yeoman describe, telling and guiding us a real enjoyment. to have a job like this, is not easy. since he must be qualified as a ranking officer and serviced in the battlefield. so indeed, this is an interesting visit, apart of the palace itself.

many tortures and executions had been held here. no wonder there are haunted stories of the bloody tower and wakefield tower. but there are also kept the armouries, thrones and other regalias which are very interesting.
