King Henry II’s 12th Century Medieval Court Recreated

“The splendour of a 12th century royal court has been recreated in Dover Castle keep, which new research suggests was originally built as a medieval PR exercise by Henry II.

The huge interior of the keep has been transformed by English Heritage in a £2.45 million scheme to give visitors a sense of how it would have looked when first built and used as a royal palace displaying the king’s strength.”
