Historian Paul M. Remfry

...contributing editor to the Castles of Wales Web Site

We are pleased to welcome Mr. Paul M. Remfry (M. Phil.) as contributing editor to the Castles of Wales web site. Mr. Remfry is the author of a series of booklets, several of which focus on castles found along the Welsh Marches and the conflicts that arose between Marcher Lords and native Welsh rulers. A recent review from the Herefordshire Archaeological News states that his works are "A must for the serious castle student."

"The subject matter is based on a study of castle remains and on their recorded history, taken as far as is possible from original sources, and including the story of the occupying families. These publications are currently being purchased as works of reference by historians, archaeologists and by record offices and libraries at home and abroad. For those who may prefer to read the text without reference to footnotes which are necessary in the academic works, a series of shorter versions is in preparation. It is hoped that these books will bring enjoyment to the reader as well as enlightenment concerning some of the more obscure areas of this island's past."
