This study aims to elucidate concepts of castle in the Netherlands, England and Ireland in both past and present times. The first part of the book examines current, respectively, academic, national and personal appropriations of 'castle'; the second part moves into the past, juxtaposing elite culture and the spatial organisation of 16th and 17th century domestic architecture.
