Beneath your feet lie the ancient remains of Edward IV's bulwark. In 1480 he paid to construct this huge addition to the castle's defences which was designed to defend against artillery power.
In the 15th century, two rival dynasties fought for England's throne, resulting in the violent conflict called the Wars of the Roses. The victorious Edward IV had good reason to strengthen his castle at this time. The bulwark's gun emplacements defended the fortress entrance from any city-led attack.
