Anglo-Saxon Landscapes at the Time of the Norman Conquest

Anglo-Saxon Landscapes Time Norman Conquest 459935130.jpg Anglo-Saxon Landscapes at the Time of the Norman Conquest Anglo-Saxons encountered great changes to their day-to-day lives in the latter half of the eleventh century due to the accession of the Normans. The Normans were much better than the Anglo-Saxons at architecture and horticulture when they came into power. But before centering on home-life or having the occasion to contemplate domestic architecture or decoration, the Normans had to subjugate an entire population. Because of this, castles were cruder structures than monasteries: Monasteries were usually immense stone buildings located in the biggest and most fertile valleys, while castles were built on windy crests where their residents devoted time and space to tasks for offense and defense. Relaxing activities such as gardening were out of place in these destitute citadels. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is exemplified in Berkeley Castle, which is conceivably the most unscathed sample we have. The keep is thought to date from the time of William the Conqueror. As a technique of deterring assailants from tunneling within the walls, an immense terrace encompasses the building. On one of these terraces lies a charming bowling green: it is covered in grass and flanked by an old yew hedge that is created into the shape of rough ramparts.
