Anglo Saxon Grounds During the Norman Conquest

Anglo Saxon Grounds  Norman Conquest 0146414550.jpg Anglo Saxon Grounds During the Norman Conquest The arrival of the Normans in the latter half of the 11th century greatly altered The Anglo-Saxon ways of living. At the time of the conquest, the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons in building design and cultivation. But there was no time for home life, domestic design, and adornment until the Normans had overcome the whole region. Most often designed upon windy peaks, castles were basic structures that allowed their occupants to spend time and space to offensive and defensive programs, while monasteries were rambling stone buildings generally placed in only the most fecund, broad valleys. Peaceful pastimes such as gardening were out of place in these desolate citadels. The best example of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture existent today is Berkeley Castle. The keep is said to date from William the Conqueror's time period. As a method of deterring assailants from tunneling underneath the walls, an immense terrace encircles the building. One of these terraces, a charming bowling green, is covered grass and flanked by an old yew hedge trimmed into the shape of crude battlements.
