Bamburgh Castle

Author File Description

File Details
Map Size: 400x400 (Large)
Difficulty: Normal
Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland

Bamburgh is a majestic, imposing site and is built on an outcrop of the Great Whin Sill. A naturally defensive site, the castle took shape after the Norman invasion, however there has been a settlement or fortification here many years previously. Bede, a monk from Jarrow, wrote of the importance of Bamburgh and it was a royal capital of the kingdom of Bernicia in AD 547.

This siege map plays well on normal difficulty as an attacker. There are two entrances to the castle, both with their own advantages and disadvantages, though the main entrance is to the south. As a defender, you may find it more of a challenge playing with maximum attacking troops, although it has been designed to be played predominantly as an attacker.

The map reflects the early beginnings of a medieval settlement outside the castle walls.

Bamburgh will be featured as a Castle of the Week: please refer to the write-up provided here for a more in-depth story.

Special thanks to GillB for all her efforts, time and patience on this.
