Description

Windsor Castle, the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, has been a site of fundamental historical, cultural and architectural importance for nearly 1,000 years.

This new popular history of the Castle explains how a Norman motte-and-bailey castle established by William the Conqueror around 1070 survived and evolved through the Middle Ages, the English Civil War, the Restoration of the monarchy, two world wars and the disastrous fire of 1992, to remain the premier royal residence of Her Majesty The Queen to this day.

Beautifully illustrated with spectacular paintings, drawings and photographs from the Royal Collection, this book also includes newly commissioned photography of the Castle as it appears today, as well as 3D reconstructions of the Castle at important moments in its history, revealing how this extraordinary building has evolved.
