Castles and the Anglo-Norman World draws together a series of 20 papers by 26 French and English specialists in the field of Anglo-Norman studies. It includes summaries of current knowledge and new research into important Norman castles in England and Normandy, drawing on information from recent excavations. Sections consider the evolution of Anglo-Norman castles, the architecture and archaeology of Norman monuments, Romanesque architecture and artefacts, the Bayeux Tapestry and the presentation of historic sites to the public. These studies are presented together with a consideration of the 12th century cross-Channel Norman Empire, which provides a broader context. This work is the result of a conference held at Norwich Castle in 2012, which was part of a collaboration between professionals in the fields of archaeology, architecture, museums and heritage, under the banner of the Norman Connections Project.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Many of the essays are site specific, but throughout there are thoughtful insights: on Norman monuments, Romanesque architecture and artefacts, the Bayeux tapestry and the presentation of sites to the public. * British Archaeology Magazine *
Nicely produced, with effective use of colour, and with abstracts in English for French papers and vice versa, this is an accessible as well as agenda-setting volume... makes big strides in the right direction and is to be warmly welcomed. * Medieval Archaeology *
In sum, I find myself pleasantly intrigued and intellectually stimulated by several of the well-presented and vividly illustrated arguments gathered in this book... * The Medieval Review *
