EDITORS COMMENTS
1. Pickering Castle: A Glimpse into the Past through Ivan Lapper's Illustration Welcome to Pickering Castle, a captivating medieval fortification nestled in the heart of North Yorkshire, England. This evocative image, J850150 from the Historic England Photo Library, offers a fascinating insight into the castle's early history through a meticulously crafted reconstruction drawing by Ivan Lapper. The photograph showcases a bird's-eye view of the castle, revealing its intricate layout and defensive features. At the core of the image lies the motte, a conical mound of earth and rubble upon which a wooden tower once stood. Surrounding the motte is the bailey, a large open area encircled by a defensive wall. The Norman conquest of England in the late 11th century marked the beginning of Pickering Castle's history. This illustration provides a glimpse into how the first wooden motte and bailey castle may have appeared in the early 12th century. The wooden tower on the motte would have offered a commanding view of the surrounding landscape, allowing its occupants to spot potential threats from afar. The bailey, meanwhile, would have housed the castle's inhabitants and their livestock, providing protection and sustenance during times of siege. The graphic construction details in this illustration highlight the ingenuity and resourcefulness of medieval fortifications. The intricate design of the walls, the strategic placement of the motte, and the careful consideration of the castle's defensive features all speak to the importance of fortification in medieval society. In summary, this image of Pickering Castle, created by Ivan Lapper, offers a unique perspective on the castle's rich history. It invites us to explore the past and appreciate the ingenuity and resilience of medieval fortifications.
