Description

Details

Warkworth Castle, near Alnwick in Northumberland, is an example of a medieval aristocratic fortified residence. It is a large, complex and ancient structure. Every century from the 12th to the 20th left its mark on it. Its development came to comprise, in effect, two castles, one laid out round the outer bailey and the other in the keep. This handbook explains the history of the castle, from its beginnings to the reign of Henry VIII. It explains the purpose of the castle and its position in medieval society. There is also a descriptive tour of the remaining buildings, written as if the reader were visiting the site in 1532.
