Anglo Saxon Gardens During the Norman Conquest

Anglo Saxon Gardens Norman Conquest 14774576666905.jpg Anglo-Saxons experienced great modifications to their daily lives in the latter half of the eleventh century due to the accession of the Normans. The talent of the Normans exceeded the Anglo-Saxons' in design and agriculture at the time of the conquest. Nonetheless the Normans had to pacify the overall territory before they could focus on home life, domestic architecture, and decoration. Monasteries and castles served different functions, 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 learning offensive and defensive practices. Gardening, a placid occupation, was unfeasible in these unproductive fortifications. Berkeley Castle is probably the most intact model in existence nowadays of the early Anglo-Norman form of architecture. The keep is rumored to have been invented during the time of William the Conqueror. A spacious terrace intended for walking and as a means to stop attackers from mining under the walls runs around the building. On one of these parapets is a scenic bowling green covered in grass and bordered by an aged hedge of yew that has been shaped into coarse battlements.
