Castles in Wessex

Alan Turton

ISBN: 978-1-903035-36-8

Wessex is rich in castles and other fortifications, and this well-written and comprehensively illustrated book is an excellent and very enjoyable guide to them.

There are specialised sections on sieges and siege-engines, life in the castle, and the way castles were staffed and operated, ending with a complete gazetteer of all the castles in the five traditional Wessex counties.
