At times this is an epic tale, driven by characters like William the Conqueror, King John, and Edward I, full of sieges and conquest on an awesome scale. But it is also by turns an intimate story of less eminent individuals, whose adventures, struggles, and ambitions were reflected in the fortified residences they constructed. Be it ever so grand or ever so humble, a castle was first and foremost a home.
To understand castles - who built them, who lived in them, and why - is to understand the forces that shaped medieval Britain.

This is a terrific book and well narrated. I’ve listened twice and probably will again. It’s about so much more than castles. There’s a lot of history associated with the castles that I found very interesting.
