Bamburgh Castle
Bamburgh Castle
Bamburgh Castle is set high on a massive rock
overlooking the sea and visible for miles
along the NorthUmberian coast.  The rock
was probably used as a natural stronghold by 
the Celts and the Romans., but is was 
certainly occupied in Saxon times. Plus
Bamburgh achieved widespread fame as the 
resting place of the head and right hand of
St. Oswald.  In the War of the Roses,  it was
held by the Lancastrians, and in 1464, it was
captured  by Robert Neville, who pounded it
to pieces with artillery before it surrendered.

In Norman times Bamburgh became the property
of Robert, Earl of Northumberland, who in 1095
foolishly picked a quarrel with King William II.
The castle was besieged, but held out, and so the 
King built a siege-castle, called Malveisin, 
which translates into "Evil Neighbour". It's
garrison captured Earl Robert as he tried
to sneak off to Tynemouth. His wife surrendered
Bamburgh when they threatened to put his
eyes out.
