A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Carmarthen Castle was one of the largest castles in medieval Wales. It was also one of the most important, in its role as a centre of government and as a Crown possession in a region dominated by Welsh lands and Marcher lordships. Largely demolished during the seventeenth century, it was subsequently redeveloped, first as a prison and later as the local authority headquarters. Yet the surviving remains, and their situation, are still impressive. The situation changed with a major programme of archaeological and research work, from 1993 to 2006, which is described in this book. The history of the castle, its impact on the region and on Wales as a whole are also examined: we see the officials and other occupants of the castle, their activities and how they interacted with their environment. Excavations at the castle, and the artefacts recovered, are described along with its remaining archaeological potential. This book puts Carmarthen Castle back at the heart of the history of medieval Wales, and in its proper place in castle studies and architectural history, the whole study combining to make a major contribution to the history of one of Wales s great towns.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Carmarthen Castle is one of Wales’s most important but least-known castles. This book examines the history and development of this center of government from the medieval period to the present day. Drawing on recent archaeological excavations and documentary research, Neil Ludlow sheds light on what daily life was like for castle officials and other occupants and provides details of their interactions with the town of Carmarthen, the surrounding region and beyond. Included are several previously unpublished maps, plans, and illustrations that provide context and aid in describing existing and former buildings and their uses. This book restores Carmarthen Castle to its place at the heart of Wales’s medieval history.

About the Author:

Neil Ludlow is a consulting archaeologist who lives in Hampshire, UK. Formerly a project manager with Dyfed Archaeological Trust, he practiced in west Wales for twenty-five years, acquiring a comprehensive knowledge of the region’s medieval history and buildings.
