Written by a teacher, as part of a series of reference books, Discovering Castles aims to make history interesting and accessible to boys and girls. It is a survey of castles built by the English in England and in Wales from the Norman Conquest to the 16th century.
Using drawings and plans, Earnshaw shows how and why the design of castles changed over time and explains how castles were attacked and besieged. There is information about knights, and life in the middle ages, and also an appendix about torture devices.
