Some of the greatest medieval castles survive only as earthworks and in pictures and written accounts of that time, because they were made of timber. The authors, who have excavated in detail the timber castle at Hen Domen in Wales, have brought together evidence of all kinds to produce the first comprehensive survey of this neglected and little-known type of fortification. This book includes examples and illustrations from all over Europe.
