Medieval History/Castles


Can you tell me a list of standing castles from medieval times?

Hi Derek,

Eilean Ponan Castle, Scotland
Blackness Castle, Scotland
Stalker Castle, Scotland
Corfe Castle, England
Conwy Castle, Wales
Chepstow Castle, Wales
Denbigh Castle, Wales
Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland, England
Dover Castle, Kent, England
Rochester Castle, Kent, England
Tower of London
Warkworth Castle, Northumberland, England
Chateau d'Aguilar, (ruin) Southwestern France
Chateau d'Arques, SW France
Chateau de Beynac, SW France
Chateau Comptal de Carcassonne, SW France
Chateau de Foix, SW France
Chateau de Haut Koenigsbourg, Alsace, Eastern France
Lastours, (ruin) SW France
Trim Castle, County Meath, Ireland
Almourol Castle, Portugal
Castle of Sao Jorge, Portugal
Montebello Castle - Bellinzona, Ticino, Switzerland

As best I can tell, these are all medieval castles. Most places called castles today were built more recently than the Middle Ages.

I've been studying the early medieval period for almost 20 years. In particular, I've studied the fall of the Roman Empire, the barbarian invasions/migrations, early barbarian law codes, the early medieval church, technology of the period, military campaigns and tactics, and some of the early barbarian dynasties, especially the Merovingians in Gaul (France).


Twenty years of self study. I also write historical fiction of this era.

Bachelor's degree.
