The Medieval Castle in England and Wales

A social and political history
Norman J. G. Pounds

Perhaps one of the best castle books published in the later half of the 20th century. Norman Pounds gives detailed insight into the reasons for building castles in England and Wales, how the castles were used and such important details of the cost of garrisoning a castle. This text is excellent for giving detailed examples of the social and political aspects of castles.
