Anglo-Saxon Gardens at the Time of the Norman Conquest

At the time of the conquest, the Normans surpassed the Anglo-Saxons in building design and cultivation.Anglo-Saxon Gardens  Time Norman Conquest 90181901876846.jpg But home life, household architecture, and decoration were out of the question until the Normans taken over the entire population. Castles were more standard designs and often built on blustery hills, where their tenants spent both time and space to exercising offense and defense, while monasteries were large stone buildings, mostly situated in the widest, most fertile hollows. Gardening, a quiet occupation, was impracticable in these fruitless fortifications. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is exemplified in Berkeley Castle, which is most likely the most untouched illustration we have. It is said that the keep was created during William the Conqueror's time. An enormous terrace encompasses the building, serving as an obstruction to attackers attempting to excavate under the castle walls. A picturesque bowling green, covered in grass and enclosed by battlements cut out of an ancient yew hedge, creates one of the terraces.
