To many, medieval castles are the essence of Britain and Ireland's fascinating past. Immersed in history and centuries old, each one tells a story of Kings, Queens and feuding lords; war and bloody conflict; treason, revenge and murder. In Castles of Britain and Ireland, Rodney Castleden weaves a fascinating and detailed narrative of 115 of the grandest and most historically significant castles in the British Isles, including Balmoral in Scotland, Bunratty in Ireland, Caernarfon in Wales and St Michael's Mount in England. As well as the details of the construction, function, and often the destruction of these magnificent buildings, each chapter also tells the human stories behind these ancient walls, with fascinating details of everyday life within.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An Englishman's home is his castle - but as this stunning collection of 115 fortress photographs shows, Scotland, Wales and Ireland can also boast magnificent symbols of bloody territorial disputes, royal vanity and mythical magic' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
