The Medieval Castles of Wales is a concise but informative guide that highlights the most important and interesting medieval castles throughout the Welsh countryside. The opening chapter traces the history of castle architecture in Britain. The five subsequent chapters--divided by region--guide the reader through these magnificent structures, with each entry featuring a history of the site, a description of the visible remains, and relevant tourist information such as maps and entry prices. A final chapter provides a brief overview of castle-like buildings constructed since the seventeenth century and an extensive bibliography for further reading.
