Surrounded by moats, graced with towers reaching towards the heavens, castles represent the ultimate in privacy, elegance, and power. Until now, the beauty and overwhelming strength of these magnificent structures seemed to embody an unexplorable, unexplainable, mysterious past. In this remarkable volume, C.W.C. Oman, a highly respected professor at Oxford University, opens the doors to 80 castles in England and Wales and shares his knowledge and experience with everyone. Tourists and armchair travelers alike who have long been enthralled by castles can now pass through the regal port icos to the bygone days of royal and baronial power and privilege.
