Castles of Wales

Be the first to review this product

Wales, a small country, is littered with the relics of war Iron Age forts, Roman ruins, medieval castles and the coastal forts of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The biggest construction of fortifications in Wales took place during the reign of Edward I. They were not only built to deter an invader, but to control the frequent Welsh uprisings. The next wave of constructions occurred during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, when a number of forts and gun emplacements were built, mostly in South Wales, to deter a sea born invasion. The twentieth century introduced a new mode of defense, especially during the two world wars, in the form of pill boxes, tank traps and gun emplacements. The various airfields constructed were the most visible form of defense and could be regarded as the castles of the period. During the period known as the Cold War era, a new type of structure appeared throughout Wales. These were the reinforced concrete bunkers built to protect military and governmental departments and withstand a nuclear blast.
