A Norman Castle .........

...........the Oxford Castle



Oxford Castle is quite a good example of an early Norman castle.


Like the other first Norman castles in Britain it started as  an earth mound and then a wooden structure ... 


The first of the Oxford Catle was simply a wooden fence.


An example of how many things start  from a humble beginng.


Foundations stress their importance in buildings and so much more in life.


For the first few centuries it was of the  upmost military importance.


A time of the upheavals in the British Isles during this time.
