Abstract

This session includes presentations from three members of curatorial staff at English Heritage on medieval castles now in state care: Carisbrooke, Orford, Richmond, and Stokesay. The papers discuss new architectural, archaeological, and documentary discoveries regarding construction, phasing, adaptation, and destruction during the Middle Ages and later. The sites are also considered through the prisms of power and gender.
