🎧 Gone Medieval • 41m
Castles have held a pivotal place in British life, many of them remaining today as powerful reminders of our history and sources of inspiration. But castles were also homes and status symbols as well as hubs of life, activity, and imagination.

The Senior Producer on this episode was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.
