Castles - fortified feudal residences - are unique to the Middle Ages and, contrary to popular perception, they were more lived in than fought over. From anarchy to zig-zag moulding, garderobes and gargoyles to tournaments, this A-Z reference book deals with the castle as it was in medieval times, explaining its central role in the exercise of feudal power as well as its architecture, household organisation, defences and historical context. With lists of further reading and relevant addresses and an index of castles.
