Opis: How To Read Castles - Malcolm Hislop

How to Read Castles is a travel-sized primer that takes a strictly visual approach to castle architecture, building up the reader's vocabulary of castle types, styles, and materials, and showing how these aspects can be recognized across architectural features from the floor-plan and moat, to the towers and crenulations. Focusing on the period from the 10th to the 16th century, and crusading across the globe from a Welsh motte-and-bailey to a Japanese hirajiro, this is both architectural reference and visitor guide - showing the reader how to read the stories embedded in every castle's stones. Castles once dominated the landscape as seats of power and symbols of wealth and status, providing a means of control over borders, passes, routes and rivers. Armed with this book you will be able to unpick their histories and see how they shaped the land around them. From rugged coastline defences to soaring mountain fortresses, this book takes the reader on an international journey of discovery, exploring some of the most inspiring and impressive architecture history has ever seen.Introduction THE GRAMMAR OF CASTLES Function Design & Construction Castle Types Destruction & Revival CASTLES: FEATURE BY FEATURE The Great Tower The Enceinte Tower, Turrets & Bartizans The Entrance Barbicans Wallhead Defences Accommodation Chapels Dungeons, Oubliettes & Prisons Doors & Windows Water Supply & Sanitation Heating Staircases Glossary Resources Index
