Knights and Castles

$9.00

Today, most castles are in ruins. Many of these once magnificent buildings were built on hilltops overlooking rivers, harbours and towns. In peacetime, castles were crowded, bustling communities. During wartime, they became safe strongholds for the people who lived in them. The most important people who lived in the castles were the lords and their knights.
