The Early History of Lincoln Castle.
A detailed study of the Castle, with contributions on the early castle, early topography, archaeology before and after 1068, architectural context of the medieval defences including Lucy Tower, the East gate and the West gate, the Castle’s occupants in the reign of King Stephen. It also includes many photographs and drawings.
It became abundantly clear at a conference (held in 1995) that the castle’s early history and architectural development was highly controversial. Even if this book may seem at first sight to be a case study of how a group of eminent archaeologists and architectural historians can come to profoundly different views, based on essentially the same visual and documentary evidence, the valuable new information it contains will enable thoughtful readers to come to their own conclusions.
