Course Description

From the eleventh century, stone castles were erected throughout the country, first to reaffirm the Norman Conquest, then to consolidate the builder’s power and/or status. This course will examine the design and construction of medieval castles and fortifications in Britain, from the Norman ‘motte and bailey’ to the most sophisticated fortresses built by Edward I. In addition, the course will study the strategies, tactics, and weaponry employed in defending and attacking a castle.
