Meet the Castle Builders - the masons and laborers who did the hard work; the geniuses of design and structural engineering who imagined these mediaeval mega-structures; and the kings and barons who commissioned them. This episode outlines how the history of the Middle Ages - Wars in France and England, the Inquisition and the Reformation, required and shaped these monuments in stone, and how the castles changed the course of that history.
