Multangular Tower

Multangular Tower

Geoffrey H.
The Multangular Tower is the western corner tower of the Roman fortress, and consists of both Roman and medieval architecture. The tower has 10 sides, from which it derives its modern name "multangular", and is 19 feet (5.8 m) high. It was built in its late Roman form during the early 4th century, when it was constructed with three floors to house a catapult. Five Roman stone coffins are in the Multangular Tower, which were brought from graveyards in other areas of York. #British #City_walls #England #Europe #G3FX #Great_Britain #Medieval #Multangular_Tower #North_Yorkshire #Roman #St_Marys_Abbey #Tower #UK #Wall #Walls #York #York_Bar_Walls #York_City_Walls #Yorkshire
