Archaeological excavations performed at the Tower of London
since the end of the Second World War have been published in
a series of papers in the Transactions of the London and Middlesex
Archaeological Society, chiefly by Geoffrey Parnell. His monograph
'The Tower of London' was published by English Heritage in 1993.
More recent research will be covered in a forthcoming book by
Edward Impey of Historic Royal Palaces.
The most recent sources for 'the skeletons they found, presumably
of the two boy princes' include:-

Study in Identity' LONDON ARCHAEOLOGIST 5:10, 1987 258-262

Can anyone tell me if there has been any publications or information
available on the archaeology at the Tower of London?
I keep watching the Tower series on the History Channel (and also Tales
the Tower on Discovery) and see the archaeological consultant speaking
various finds and ongoing excavations, etc, but wondered if this was
available to us to read about? Is there more information available on the
skeletons they found, presumably of the two boy princes?
Do they ever do tours there on what they have found? (apart from the
daily tourist tours of course).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
