Architecture and horticulture were abilities that the Normans excelled in, trumping that of the Anglo-Saxons at the time of the occupation. But home life, household architecture, and decoration were out of the question until the Normans taken over the general population. Monasteries and castles served different purposes, so while monasteries were enormous stone structures built in only the most productive, wide dales, castles were set upon blustery knolls where the occupants focused on understanding offensive and defensive practices. Gardening, a quiet occupation, was impracticable in these unproductive fortifications. The best specimen of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture existent in modern times is Berkeley Castle. The keep is rumored to have been invented during the time of William the Conqueror. As a method of deterring attackers from tunneling under the walls, an immense terrace encompasses the building. A picturesque bowling green, enveloped in grass and bordered by battlements clipped out of an ancient yew hedge, forms one of the terraces.
