Once a seat of government as well as the private residence of its owners, the medieval castle was also a military base and stronghold for the surrounding geographical area. The development of these sturdy fortifications in England during the Middle Ages is carefully examined in this profusely illustrated book.
From early chapters dealing with primitive earthworks and Roman stations, the text goes on to explore the construction of the English castle following the Norman Conquest, the beginnings of the stone castle and the Norman keep, bastions of the thirteenth century, military architecture, fortified towns in the later Middle Ages, and more.
Students of architecture, military history, and medieval studies—as well as anyone interested in the evolution of castle construction—will find this work a fascinating and valuable reference.

Unabridged republication of Military Architecture in England During the Middle Ages, originally published by Oxford University Press, London, 1912.
