Another series on castles is also starting soon on BBC4. Called ‘Castles: Britain’s Fortified History’, it is presented by historian Sam Willis who traces the story of Britain’s castles and their unique role in our history, art and literature. The first episode is being shown on Thursday 4th December at 9.00pm and should be of particular interest to those considering taking ‘The Norman World’ at Loughborough in the Spring as it begins with the Norman Conquest of England in AD 1066.
