The Key to England

Henry II had some serious damage control to tend to after he allegedly ordered his buddy Beckett’s murder. So he built Dover Castle to distract and impress his constituencies. Of course, he could not predict how useful these fortifications and secret tunnels would become in defending against Adolf and company many centuries later. We enjoyed a very informative tour of the WWII tunnels yesterday. (no photos allowed) For more info see http://www.historyextra.com/visit/dover-war-tunnels
