Although various types of fortification existed well before the Norman invasion and many modern 'Stately Homes' are often referred to as such, this book explores 30 of the countries surviving structures considered to be 'true castles'. Built between the eleventh and seventeenth centuries when they signified power and status, these fortifications lie at the very heart of Britain's heritage. The purpose-built south coast defences of Henry VIII are a bit of an anomaly, but examples of these are included for their diversity. Each article comprises a colour photograph, an historical overview, and an information panel containing opening times, grid reference, address, telephone number, and web site details (where applicable).
