The Castle in England and Wales : An Interpretive History, Hardback Book

The Castle in England and Wales : An Interpretive History Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The Medieval World series

Description

Originally published in 1988, The Castles in England and Wales is a comprehensive treatment of the archaeology of the castles in England and Wales.

The books looks at how following the Norman Conquest, one of the most characteristic structures of the English landscape, the castle, was used to control and survey the population.

In its simplest definition a castle is a fortified habitation, however this book looks at the many uses of castles, from their most primitive kind, intended only for periodic use, or as magnificent decoration, such as Caernarvon and other Welsh castles of Edward I.

It is essential reading for all archaeologists and historians alike.
