Description
Gorgeously illustrated with color photos, drawings, maps, and plan views, this visual history from the author of The World of the Medieval Knight and Medieval Siege Warfare is a guide to the world's most intriguing castles and strongholds. Christopher Gravett, former curator of the Tower of London, takes us back to ancient Greek, Roman, and Celtic fortifications, and explains the architectural history and functions of castles as they developed following the death of Charlemagne in 814. Here are the Welsh castles of Edward I, the "10,000 Castles" of Germany, the palace castles of Castile, Portuguese towers and citadels, Italy's imposing Castel del Monte, castles in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and castles in Mughal India, Japan, China, and South America.
