Description

The Great Walls of Newcastle (Exploring The City’s Ancient Defences) by Ken Smith and Tom Yellowley

Published 2012, Paperback Edition, 96 pages.

This book tells the story of three sets of walls; the Roman Wall, the Town Walls and the walls of the Castle Keep, that helped to shape and protect this ancient settlement for nearly two thousand years.

As the dangers of invasion diminished, the towers and turrets of the Town Walls took on new roles as homes for trade guilds, as workshops, and as private dwellings.The Castle Keep and the Black Gate underwent many changes.

A walking tour around the Town Walls is included, along with a fold-out map to show the way.
