The Medieval Castle
Life In A Fortress In Peace And WarBook - 1971
The influence of the castle, both on the course of history and on the lives of the people who lived in them, has never been fully explored-until now. This fascinating book examines the evolution of the medieval castle, from the rigid social structure of its society to the types of weapons, training, and tactics employed during wartime. Above all, "The Medieval Castle" is a book about the daily life-from clothes and food to recreation and customs-and the people who made their homes inside a military fortress.
