Never miss another 'Dan Snow' show
An Audience: Dan Snow
Dan’s new book, Castles , due out in September, will tie in with a BBC TV series of the same name and follows the building of these epic structures and the bloody weapons used to defeat them.
In this illustrated talk Dan Snow charts the history and development of castle warfare through the stories of six great castles. Each represents the best of its type and period, and has been tested in battle. In his usual lively and engaging style now so well known to TV viewers Dan recounts the history of the castles, gives an account of how each was built, by whom and why,
From Dover Castle to the astonishing Crac des Chevaliers in the Holy Land Dan will investigate how these mammoth structures were built and used.
Dan Snow is an historian who has researched, written and presented several documentaries on British and world history for the BBC including Twentieth Century Battlefields, the BAFTA award-winning Battlefield Britain, which he co-presented with his father Peter Snow, and his BBC2 series on the history of the Royal Navy.
