Castles, town defences, and artillery fortifications in Britain and Ireland: a bibliography (Volume 2)

John R Kenyon

CBA Research Report No 53 (1983)

ISBN 0 906780 31 4


Title page of report 53

This is the first supplement to the 1978 bibliography, published by the CBA as Research Report 25, which primarily concentrated on material published between 1945 and 1974, but which included an appendix listing material published up to March 1977.
This volume covers the years 1977-82, with publications known to the compiler at the time of writing (April 1982). However, several minor references have been included which were omitted from Volume 1. Many of these relate to Welsh castles, including the more important entries in the summer meeting programmes of the Cambrian Archaeological Association, a publication of which the author was not aware until he joined the staff of the National Museum of Wales late in 1979. A major difference between Volume 2 and Volume 1 is the inclusion of Ireland in the final section of Volume 2, with its own short introduction highlighting some of the main publications for the years 1945-82 on Norman and later fortifications.
