The English word “castle” derives from the Latin castellum and refers to the private fortified residence of a lord or noble. The presence of castles in Britain and Ireland dates primarily from the Norman invasion of 1066. Before the arrival of the Normans, the Anglo-Saxons had built burhs, fortified structures with their origins in 9th-century Wessex.
