Combines with:Uncovering Camelot: A Journey Through Arthurian Britain
Thousands of castles – some occupied, many more ruined – survive in the historic British landscape. These structures once served both as a military device and as a private home. Many still dominate town centers. Some are enormous complexes; others little more than eroded earthworks. Each, however, played its role in history, effecting both social and economic change while permanently marking the territory it ruled. And each reveals a fascinating window into the past. Join us on this breathtaking journey through the magical scenery of Southern England and Wales as we visit twenty-two of the most fascinating medieval castles and examine the stories they have left for posterity.
