Description

Photographs of Corfe Castle and its surroundings. Corfe, in Dorset, was the site of the murder of Edward the Martyr in 978 in circumstances which are still debated, allowing Æthelræd to come to the throne. The photographs are taken around the ring of the natural hill upon which Corfe Castle (now ruined), sits. They are also of memorial plaques in the village. The castle is much later, of course. and in Saxon times there was probably some form of stronghold.
