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.
