Windsor Castle

An Illustrated History

Pamela Hartshorne

208 pages

Windsor Castle, the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, has been a site of fundamental historical, cultural and architectural importance for nearly 1,000 years. In this new official history of the castle, historian Pamela Hartshorne explains how a Norman motte and bailey fortress built by William the Conqueror in around 1070 survived and evolved through the Middle Ages, the English Civil War, the Restoration of the Monarchy, two world wars and the disastrous fire of 1992, to remain a significant royal residence of His Majesty The King to this day.  

Beautifully illustrated with spectacular paintings, drawings and photographs from the Royal Collection, this book also includes newly commissioned photography of the castle as it appears today, as well as reconstructions of the castle at important moments in its history, showcasing how this extraordinary building has changed over ten centuries.
