The Magnificent Castles of UK

The castles of UK are magnificent architectural pieces of art that are usually recognized to be built of stone during the Medieval Period. However, the history of the castles dates back to the Neolithic times. Every period has its own classification of castles but the first proper castles were introduced by the Normans. The Medieval castles were built from 1066 till the beginning of the Tudor period in 1485. Castles were more than just fortresses; the hall was the main highlight and the venue for banquets. Most castles also feature a well but no particular reason has been attributed to this fact other than an ease in obtaining water. Today these castles serve as excellent travel destinations and carry a lot of information about the past.
