Title : Castle studies group, The

Description :
This is the website for the Castle Studies Group (CSG), the association of professional and amateur historians and archaeologists. The site is an excellent starting point for getting up-to-date information on the state of research into castles mainly in the UK and Ireland. The CSG aims to promote the study of castles, particularly as evidence for both the military and non-military aspects of medieval society. Since 1995, it has published an annual newsletter, bulletin or journal, together with an exceptional bibliography of international castle studies compiled by Dr John Kenyon (National Museum of Wales, Cardiff). The most recent bulletins, journal articles, newsletters and bibliographies from 2004 can be downloaded free of charge as PDF files. Publications may also be bought by mail order while stocks last. Information about the organisation's forthcoming book publications is also available from the website. The events section includes information about the CSG's annual conference and also about related conferences and study tours. A search facility is available from the home page.
