Strategically placed, eerily magnificent and the corner stones of Britain's ancient history, the ruins of British castles are a link with the bygone eras of the world's oldest surviving kingdom. They were built in the days when might was right and a fortress was the last defense against plundering invaders or jealous neighbors. Massively built and crafted by stonemasons and carpenters, whose skills were passed from father to son, these beautiful buildings are now in safe hands and cared for by national heritage trusts. This book is packed with historical notes, archaeological plans and geographical details of the location of each castle.
