    PDF/EPUB chorvatsko.pro ☆ Castles ePUB ë castles ebok, Castles KindleThis is an introduction to the history of castles in Britain The book starts out with the Norman Conuest and how William The Conueror brought castle building to England The hey day of castle building in Britain was from 1066 to the 15th Century and Morris spends time explaining the origins of several castles throughout the country I am a British history buff and particularly enjoy reading about the Medieval Era so this was right up my alley I have visited several of the castles that he included in the book and it was nice to get a in depth history of these landmarks

    PDF/EPUB chorvatsko.pro ☆ Castles ePUB ë castles ebok, Castles KindleIf you’re fascinated by castles then I definitely recommend this book It’s not just a dry recounting of what castle was built when but an examination of why castles were built and what they were used for and what they say about the people who built them There are some gorgeous photos and ideas for places to visit but it’s not intended as an exhaustive guide — it focuses on a couple of example castles rather than talking about every single significant or interesting castle in BritainEven better Morris keeps the tone light knowing just when to comment wryly or appreciatively about the people and ideas he’s writing about It’s not just an interesting read in terms of the information given but an entertaining one tooPosted for The Bibliophibian

    PDF/EPUB chorvatsko.pro ☆ Castles ePUB ë castles ebok, Castles KindleWhat were castles? Were they the same in definition and in reality? Morris takes the pragmatic view that a castle was something known as a castle Why did someone want a castle? He shows that it wasn't always defensive but a matter of status as well

    PDF/EPUB chorvatsko.pro ☆ Castles ePUB ë castles ebok, Castles KindleFor a long time I have been deeply interested in castles and had the dream of having one of my own This book does a good job at pointing out why this is the case for me and no doubt for many other people as well in reminding the reader that a castle is both a fortress and a home both a defended place as well as one that was where someone lived with their household  That combination of fortress and home is not something that can be forgotten because it was present from the very beginnings of the castle  Likewise it is i

    PDF/EPUB chorvatsko.pro ☆ Castles ePUB ë castles ebok, Castles KindleI think Marc Morris is a fantastic historian and author I've read several of his other books A Great and Terrible King The Norman Conuest etc and this book was similarly interesting well written and rewarding I'm a huge fan of castles myself so it was wonderful to read about their various purposes and evolution It's easy to see them today scattered across the UK but until one reads a book like this it's hard to have the right framework to begin to understand their roles and eventual decay into the romantic artifacts visited by so many of us tourists and amateur historians Take Kenilworth Castle for example I visited this some 15 years ago while living in England and it was nearly painful to witness how something so beautiful had obviously either been destroyed our allowed to dec
