A fascinating study of castles, utilizing the unusual - and very effective - technique of superimposing pen-and-ink drawings on photos of modern-day existing castle ruins to show what the original structure looked like. Loaded with illustrations, the text brings to life the original reason for building castles: defense against enemies. Extensive architectural drawings are reminiscent of David Macauley's detailed work, though the text is much more advanced than Macauley. The extent of the author's research is stunning. For students and admirers of medieval castles, castle life, architecture, and military weapons and strategy, this book will be a rich resource. Ages 14-adult. Out of print -- If you love old castles, hurry and get one of the last used copies available!

What a fantastic book! I can only really second what the previous two reviewers have said, and it was partly their reviews which led me to hunt down a second-hand copy of the book. After a brief introduction on pre-Norman conquest castles, the book goes through the development of castle building through the reign of each English monarch, discussing the actual castles built in terms of their structure and use. The ink drawings and b/w photographs are very helpful, as is the glossary of castle terminology at the end. An excellent layman's guide to the subject.

This is an excellent overview of the development of castle architecture and fortifications technology from the dark ages through the wide adoption of gunpowder. The historical narrative is that of English politics, and all the castles described are located within England and Wales, but the general story will be of interest to any medievalist. Sancha's peculiar (in the sense that I've never seen anyone else do it) device is placing drawings atop photographs of existing buildings. Her reconstructions of now-ruined architecture and introductions of people into the pictures effectively draw her readers into the world she wishes to portray.
