Dover Castle

Jonathan Coed

As usual with a Batsfords publication for English Heritage this is a very well illustrated and accessibly written book.

An extracts from the 13th century castle statutes;
VI Either sergeant or warder using vile language shall be brought before the Constable, who shall have the matter considered... He who was in the wrong shall lose his day's pay - if the Constable so wills.
See also the Gatehouse record for Dover Castle and for the various 16th century associated artillery bulwarks (Archcliff Bulwark; Bulwark in the Cliff; Moats Bulwark.
