For many centuries, 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, yet it can be of the most primitive kind intended only for periodic use, or as magnificent as Caernarvon and the other Welsh castles of Edward I. This book is a comprehensive treatment of the archaeology of the castles of England and Wales. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of archaeology and history.
