  • Kenilworth as a reflection of its history
    • Early history: Norman and Angevin ownership
      • England was an unsettled country
      • Attacks and raids common due to war
      • Kenilworth acted as a fortress
      • Significant features about defence and intimidation
    • Lancastrian ownership
      • More rested political state
      • Still threats of invasion or war
      • Gaunt turned Kenilworth into a palace - reflects growing wealth and power
      • Kenilworth still needed as a defensive stronghold
    • Elizabethan ownership
      • England was united, so less chance of attack in the midlands
      • Alterations show defence is no longer the major concern
      • Buildings were about comfort and showcasing status
      • Attempt to gain power
