Summary "Simon Thurley explores the number of castles and monasteries built in Britain between the 11th and 16th centuries. At the time of the Reformation, Henry VIII ordered the dissolution of the monastic houses, since they were symbols of a power that threatened his newly formed Church of England. Out of 800, all but 16 were destroyed, the remainder being held for the King's own religious purposes." -- website
