Revealing the turbulent and dramatic history of England’s castles To use a phrase from Shakespeare, castles are ‘stories in stones’. They remained the architectural landmarks of 1,000 years of British history. The Norman flair for castle building reflected the necessity of controlling a defeated population, rewarding European knights who had aided William the Conqueror, and protecting the realm against rebellion and Scandinavian predators who were a constant threat, and established the Feudal system which unified the English into a nation. They have also provided the setting for some of the most dramatic deeds in British history in war and political conflict. In this well researched and vividly illustrated book, Marc Alexander explores the story of England’s castles, featuring many of the most colourful examples of England’s impressive range of castles. AUTHOR: Marc Alexander Is a former Fleet Street journalist and a consultant editor of Heritage Magazine. For many years he contributed a regular history column to Majesty magazine. He has written over sixty books, some of them translated into nine languages, both in fiction and on non-fiction topics from castles to folklore.
