The Reconstruction of an Interval Tower in the York City Defences

This paper describes the reconstruction of a stone tower in the medieval walled defences around the old City of York. The towers and walls making up the defences are a scheduled ancient monument. Any reconstruction or restoration work to them consequently requires very specialised engineering techniques that will not only satisfy the structural needs of the monument but will leave it in an authentic and original form.
