You may be a castle enthusiast on holiday or an armchair aficionado seeking the perfect introduction to Welsh castles. If so, here is the perfect solution: a combination of fireside companion and practical handbook for windswept walks. The introduction sweeps through medieval history, setting the castles in their historical, political and military context, while the main text is a practical guide to nearly 80 castles with grid reference and notes on access, history and building details. Fully illustrated, "Castles in Wales, A Handbook" also includes a list of over 400 medieval castles, and an appendix of possible, post-medieval and lost castles.
