Castles of England, Scotland and Wales

Some brief overview of book

England, Scotland, and Wales together possess one of the largest and most impressive collections of castles anywhere in the world. Their names-Kenilworth, Edinburgh, Bodiam, Stirling, Tintagel-conjure images of romance, battles and intrigue. Trace each stage of the castle's development from Norman times through Plantagenet and Edwardian expansion, including their role in strengthening the coastline during the Tudor age, the appalling devastation suffered in the Civil War, and the gradual decay of the castle-and its renaissance.
