    Understanding Bodiam Castle

    Bodiam Castle, built in the 1380s in southeastern England, is perhaps the most extensively discussed castle in medieval Europe. It is certainly the most controversial. As part of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lecture series, Professor Matthew Johnson will reveal what three recent seasons of archaeological fieldwork at Bodiam have discovered about this fascinating building and how it interacted with its landscape.
