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.
