Me­dieval Cas­tles of Eng­land and Wales:

Evergreen - - News -

This book ex­am­ines why cas­tles were so es­sen­tial to me­dieval war­fare, their im­por­tance in do­mes­tic pol­i­tics, and the day- to- day lives of those who lived and worked within them. It also shows how the de­vel­op­ment of new tech­nolo­gies af­fected their con­struc­tion and de­sign, and why they even­tu­ally fell into dis­re­pair in the late Mid­dle Ages. Beau­ti­fully il­lus­trated with stun­ning pho­tographs, this is the per­fect guide for any cas­tle en­thu­si­ast seek­ing to dis­cover more about me­dieval for­ti­fi­ca­tions and their in­hab­i­tants. ( 80pp, pa­per­back)
