Pevensey Castle

Pevensey Castle, originally built around 295 AD by the Romans and called Anderida, was beside the sea but it now inland due to silting. It is surrounded by an oval Roman wall often 12 ft. thick and 25 ft. high occupying ten acres. After the Romans left, invading Anglo-Saxons slaughtered its local inhabitants in 491 then left it derelict. William Duke of Normandy arrived in 1066 they set up a wooden look out tower and following William's subsequent coronation, strengthened the site.
