"While the price is undoubtedly high for a 50 min. documentary, it is very hard to find anything about timber castles. As anyone who loves history will know, most programs on castles spend the majority of their time on the idiocy of "knights in shining armor" and dungeons. This one does not!
It begins with a fairly simple explaination of the beginning of castles (quite rudimentary to any but a beginner), but then progresses to useful information of timber castles, their construction, being replaced by stone ones, an even being painted to look as if they were stone.
As I said, very expensive for a 50 min. show, but still worth it to those who love the history of castles and want something beyond the usual dreck that is offered."
