Today I’m the guest blogger on the English Historical Fiction Authors site. If you’d like to have a look at the post about castles in England, you can read it here.

Castles! I’d love to visit Guédelon, too. Recently, I’ve been watching the Secrets of Great British Castles presented by Dan Jones; Cardiff Castle’s now on my to-see list.
Castles generally are on my list this year. Thanks to Guedelon I have a better idea of what they used to look like.

What a fascinating post! As an American I haven’t had the opportunity to explore many castles that aren’t of the Disney variety, but oh how I would love to. I did get to visit Norwich castle about 15 years ago. Someday I’ll travel again. Sigh.
It is something that we can take for granted too easily. I live half an hour’s walk from what I believe are the second (possibly third) most complete medieval town walls in the country. Our castle is one that has disappeared, but the ruins of a couple of towers remain. There are also Roman and Saxon remains, but I know less about them.
