Berkhamsted Castle, 1066 to 1495
Spiral-bound - 23 pages (1995). Book Description: Deals with this beautifully moated fortress set in the Home County of Hertfordshire. The castle history from its foundation, possibly by Robert of Mortain, the Conqueror's brother, to its resumption as a royal residence and home of the Queens of England is examined. This is followed by the detailed description of the castle remains with references to the site clearances and excavations which took place earlier this century. The external earthworks of the castle are also examined with the conclusion that they were probably constructed for King John before the castle's siege in 1216. From the Publisher: The first to be home-published was Clun Castle in 1994. This was a successful comprehensive history based solely on original Anglo-Welsh manuscripts. Since this 32 more followed making up the present collection in the British Castles Series. Professionals and individuals find them useful for their research and interest purposes in medieval history, archaeology, genealogy, and family and local history.
