England - A Norman Castle

A Norman Castle in 11th century England, from a drawing by T.C. Barfield in Longmans' Historical Illustrations. It appears to be a stone keep castle, with a square, thick-walled keep in the center protected by a thick outer wall and towers. A moat protects the inner wall, and a drawbridge allows entry. Guards dressed in armor and wielding pikes are posted at strategic positions. This was likely a Norman castle, influenced by French building customs, (1913).
