In ancient and medieval times castles were the ultimate symbol of power, dominating their surroundings, and marking the landscape with their imposing size and impregnable designs. This concise history of medieval castles uses the example of individual castles, including Harbottle and Bodiam, to explore how and why they were built and what life in a castle was really like.
