TOWER BRIDGE

if you cross under the bridge, you will find the DEAD MAN'S HOLE. Here, bodies of suicides and executed people were collected from the Thames and were left into the tank until they were buried.
Moreover, Londoners could only cross the river with the wherrymen. This place was one of such point to cross it and it is said that not all crossing people were alive because sometimes boatmen carried them to sell to anatomists at Barts Hospital who paid for 6d per body, rather than the Guy's South Shore Hospital.

HISTORY

In the twentieth-century, however, Marxist historians introduced the use of the term "English Revolution" to describe the period of the English Civil Wars and Commonwealth period (1640–1660), in which Parliament challenged King Charles l's authority, engaged in civil conflict against his forces, and executed him in 1649. This was followed by a ten-year period of bourgeois republican government, the "Commonwealth", before monarchy was restored in the shape of Charles' son, Charles II in 1660.
