The problem of the Suffolk and Norfolk round towers

The problem of the Suffolk and Norfolk round towers

Another problem of East Anglia’s missing history are its puzzling and ancient round towered flint churches. Initially this appears to be a specifically Suffolk and Norfolk Norman architectural mystery, but other countries including Ireland have doubts about their variations of round towers. Who built them, exactly when and why? How can there be doubt with such unique buildings?

If this enigma is baffling enough for architect historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner to write about it in his Buildings of England books, then there is official lack of evidence.
