The book includes not only the well known stone castles but also ringworks and motte and bailey sites which only had timber buildings, plus moated or fortified houses, tower houses and town defences.

following an introduction describing the development of these buildings are six gazetteers lavishly illustrated with plans, photographs and drawings.
