Discovering Our Past, California Edition
The medieval and early modern era was a time of great conflict and change. The first Alcazar fortress in Segovia, Spain, was built by Muslim rulers about A.D. 1000. Towers and buildings were added by King John of Castle in the 1100s and by Spanish rulers in the 1400s and 1500s. Armor made of plate-mail became popular in Western Europe in the 1200s and 1300s as protection against the crossbow. The Hakuroo Castle in Hemeji, Japan, is also known as the White Heron Castle because its towers and white walls resemble a heron in flight. The castle was begun in 1601 by Ikeda Terumasa, the son-in-law of the Shogun Tokugawa leyasu, and took nine y ears to build.
