The newly refurbished Jewel House is unveiled with new displays exploring the importance of the crown jewels to the British Monarchy, the role of the Tower in protecting these treasures and the long and fascinating tradition of coronations in England. The Coronation ceremony is the central theme of the re-presentation. The displays examine how the royal regalia are used during the ceremony, and explore the symbolism of each object. Destroyed at the Tower after the Civil War and remade for Charles II's coronation in 1661, the crown jewels signify royal authority to lead, and protect, the nation.
