We visited Bodiam Castle today, which was built in the 1300’s.  I took a lot of photos, but will only be able to post the best ones, when I get home.

Debate still continues over whether Bodiam was a fortress or a grand house, or both.  Looks great, whatever the final verdict.

I scored a book titled British Battlefields, in a charity shop in Reigate a couple of days ago.   The book summaries battles from the Dark Ages until Culloden, it has diagrams showing deployment of forces and photos of re-enactors portraying the battle.  For someone who knows very little about battles fought in the UK, it is a great resource.  The biggest disappointment is that no battlefields from the Roman invasions have been identified.  Anyway, looks like I will be going to Sutton Hoo on Friday and Maldon next week.  Also heading to Bodium Castle tomorrow, which is a good example of a 14th Century castle.

The Battlefield Trust also have a great website with plenty of maps and details of battlefields and I recommend it.
