Welcome to my section
on English castles which were built by the Anglo/Norman from 1066
onward in an attempt to force my nation into submission, by the
year 1400 it seemed as through that aim had been achieved.
in the Autumn of that same year one man led Welshmen on one last
bid to throw off the yoke of suppression. For a few years it seemed
that he would achieve his dream.The Man? Owain Glyndwr! (
see The Princes ) Alas
the dream was not to be.
