Rochester Castle

English Heritage, 1987 - Architecture, Norman - 31 pages
The massive keep of Rochester Castle is the tallest 12th century great tower to survive in Europe. It resisted destruction for over 800 years – even surviving a siege in 1215, when King John breached it by mining under the south-east corner and setting fire to the pit props with the fat of 40 pigs. This souvenir guidebook is fully illustrated with photographs, plans, historic images and drawings. It includes a tour of the castle as well as a history of the buildings and the people connected to it.
