Wordless Wednesday~ Pevensey Castle

Today, a Wordless Wednesday picture:
“It is doubtful whether anything of Roman structure remains in Pevensey, though much of the material used in that castle is Roman, and though the towers of that fortification are round. It is enough to remark, that after the long night of the Saxon period the town shared in the general renaissance of South England which followed the Norman Conquest.

Pevensey Castle was built on the spot where William the Conquer landed in 1066. He then marched his army 10 miles to the battle of Hastings.
