Medieval Fortifications is the most complete archaeological account ever published of the development, form and function of fortification in Britain between the Norman conquest and the accession of the Tudors.

In the last forty years huge improvements have been made in the techniques of excavation and interpretation of medieval buildings. As a result the author has been able to reconstruct in great detail the history of the castle, the fortified house and the defended town during the period when they were of greatest military, political, social and economic importance.
