Anglo-Saxon Grounds at the Time of the Norman Conquest

Anglo-Saxon Grounds at the Time of the Norman ConquestAnglo-Saxon Grounds  Time Norman Conquest 168350744752233.jpg The arrival of the Normans in the second half of the 11th century irreparably improved The Anglo-Saxon lifestyle. Architecture and gardening were attributes that the Normans excelled in, trumping that of the Anglo-Saxons at the time of the occupation. But there was no time for home life, domesticated design, and decoration until the Normans had conquered the whole region. Castles were more fundamental designs and often erected on blustery hills, where their people devoted both time and space to practicing offense and defense, while monasteries were major stone buildings, mostly situated in the widest, most fruitful hollows. The tranquil method of gardening was not viable in these dreary bastions. Berkeley Castle is probably the most intact model in existence nowadays of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture. The keep is said to date from the time of William the Conqueror. A spacious terrace recommended for walking and as a way to stop enemies from mining below the walls runs around the building. On one of these terraces lies a charming bowling green: it's covered in grass and flanked by an old yew hedge that is created into the shape of rough ramparts.
