Showcasing the best of Welsh castles, from Chepstow and Cardiff to Rhuddlan and Beaumaris

Wales has often been described as "the land of castles," and the world's "castle capital" due to its proliferation of such superb edifices dotted all around the country. Today a good number of these have sadly crumbled and all but disappeared, but there are many still standing, a mix of evocative ruins and some impressively intact. The most famous were built under King Edward I, who used castles in Wales to crush and subdue the population and embarked upon some ambitious concentric designs, thus the castles have always staged some of the darkest episodes of history. This fascinating illustrated book explores the story of Welsh castles, featuring many of the most colorful examples throughout Wales's history, as well as a glossary, timeline, and list of castles.

Marc Alexander is a consultant editor of Heritage Magazine and for many years he contributed a regular history column to Majesty magazine.
