Summary

Originally published in 1957, Exploring Castles examines the 'classic' castle story. The book traces the origins of castles across England and Scotland, from the early Norman Castles, to Edwardian, all the way up to the ‘modern’ castles. The book case studies on individual castles, such as Newcastle upon Tyne’s castle, and the coverage of Scottish Tower Houses. The book looks at the influence of historic concepts surrounding the building of castles, such ‘bastard feudalism'. This book will be of interest to academics and students of history alike.
