The Effect of the Norman Invasion on Anglo Saxon Garden Design

The Effect of the Norman Invasion on Anglo Saxon Garden Design The introduction of the Normans in the 2nd half of the eleventh century irreparably improved The Anglo-Saxon lifestyle. Architecture and gardening were attributes that the Normans excelled in, trumping that of the Anglo-Saxons at the time of the occupation.Effect Norman Invasion Anglo Saxon Garden Design 7680962580182513175.jpg Nonetheless the Normans had to pacify the overall territory before they could concentrate on home life, domestic architecture, and decoration. Monasteries and castles served separate purposes, so while monasteries were large stone structures constructed in only the most fruitful, wide dales, castles were set upon blustery knolls where the residents focused on learning offensive and defensive tactics. Relaxing pastimes such as gardening were out of place in these destitute citadels. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is depicted in Berkeley Castle, which is most likely the most unscathed example we have. The keep is said to date from William the Conqueror's time period. As a technique of deterring attackers from tunneling under the walls, an immense terrace encompasses the building. A scenic bowling green, covered in grass and bordered by battlements cut out of an ancient yew hedge, makes one of the terraces.
