Anglo-Saxon fortifications[ edit ] The English word " castle " derives from the Latin word castellum and is used to refer to the private fortified residence of a lord or noble.
The presence of castles in Britain and Ireland dates primarily from the Norman invasion of The first of these was the establishment, by the new king, of a number of royal castles in key strategic locations.
In a few key locations the king gave his followers compact groups of estates including the six rapes of Sussex and the three earldoms of ChesterShrewsbury and Hereford ; intended to protect the line of communication with Normandy and the Welsh border respectively.
Some were built during the invasions and then abandoned while other new castles were constructed elsewhere, especially along the western borders. Recent estimates suggest that between and castles were occupied at any one time in the post-conquest period.
Most of the keeps were physically extremely robust and, while they were not designed as an intended location for the final defence of a castle, they were often placed near weak points in the walls to provide supporting fire. According to chronicler William of Newburgh royal castles formed the "bones of the kingdom".
Royal forests in the early medieval period were subject to special royal jurisdiction; forest law was, as historian Robert Huscroft describes it, "harsh and arbitrary, a matter purely for the King's will" and forests were expected to supply the king with hunting grounds, raw materials, goods and money.
Peveril Castle was linked to the Peak Forest and the local lead mining there;  St Briavels was tied to the Forest of Dean ; and KnaresboroughRockingham and Pickering to their eponymous forests respectively. Many castles, both royal and baronial, had deer parks or chases attached to them for the purposes of hunting.Editor’s Note: We welcome Hailley Fargo to the ACRLog team.
