Synopsis:

The Medieval Castles of Wales is a concise but informative guide that highlights the most important and interesting medieval castles throughout the Welsh countryside. The opening chapter traces the history of castle architecture in Britain. The five subsequent chapters—divided by region—guide the reader through these magnificent structures, with each entry featuring a history of the site, a description of the visible remains, and relevant tourist information such as maps and entry prices. A final chapter provides a brief overview of castle-like buildings constructed since the seventeenth century and an extensive bibliography for further reading.

About the Author:

John R. Kenyon is head librarian of Amgueddfa Cymru—National Museum Wales. He is one of the United Kingdom’s leading authorities on castles and has written and edited a number of books and academic papers on this topic.

Book Description University of Wales Press, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The purpose of the book is to give visitors to the medieval castles of Wales a concise but informative description of the main publicly accessible sites in a convenient format. An introductory chapter outlines the development of castle architecture in Britain, drawing on Welsh examples, with a number of box features that elaborate more fully on particular aspects, such as gatehouses, or key personalities such as Llywelyn Fawr. Five chapters form a regionally based gazetteer of the castles described. Each entry is prefaced with a key to arrangements at each castle, such as whether there is an entry charge. The know history of any given site is then summarized, and this is then followed by the core of each entry, namely the description of the visible remains, to enable visitors to navigate their way around. Some of the descriptions of the larger sites are accompanied by plans. A final chapter provides a brief overview of castle-like buildings dating from the seventeenth century onwards, and this is followed by a guide to further reading.
