Mediaeval Fortifications Summary

Mediaeval Fortifications by John R. Kenyon

The author considers the period from the introduction of the castle by the Normans to the accession of the Tudors and adopts a broadly thematic approach. The book provides a synthesis of what has been learnt about the development, form and function of British castles through excavations since 1945. Part 1 looks at the defensive functions of the castle while Part 2 examines the purely domestic building and their role within the castle. Part 3 considers town defences on which much light has been shed by the expansion of urben archaeology in the 1970s.

Table of Contents

Part 1 The castle - defences: earth-and-timber castles; masonry castles; keeps; gatehouses and towers; barbicans and bridges. Part 2 The castle - domestic: the hall; lodgings; kitchens and bakehouses; ancillary buildings; environmental evidence. Part 3 Town defences.
