Anglo-Saxon Grounds During the Norman Conquest

The arrival of the Normans in the 2nd half of the eleventh century irreparably improved The Anglo-Saxon lifestyle. The talent of the Normans exceeded the Anglo-Saxons' in design and farming at the time of the conquest. Still, home life, household architecture, and decoration were out of the question until the Normans taken over the general populace. Monasteries and castles served different purposes, so while monasteries were enormous stone structures constructed in only the most productive, wide dales, castles were set upon blustery knolls where the residents focused on understanding offensive and defensive practices. Peaceful activities such as gardening were out of place in these desolate citadels. Berkeley Castle, maybe the most uncorrupted model of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture, still exists in the present day. The keep is thought to date from the time of William the Conqueror. A significant terrace serves as a discouraging factor to intruders who would try to mine the walls of the building. A picturesque bowling green, covered in grass and surrounded by battlements clipped out of an ancient yew hedge, creates one of the terraces.Large Garden Fountains Defined 2479072229404673.jpg
