Description

Outlines a strategic approach to castles, arguing that 'it was not what was built, but where it was built' that was the key to Norman success. Castles are placed into context via landscape archaeology, and castle positioning in the landscapes of Somerset, Monmouthshire, and County Meath is also examined.
