Some interesting facts about Windsor, Berkshire

The early history of the site is unknown, although the site was almost certainly settled many years before the medieval castle was built. Histories of the town note that the combination of the navigable river and the strategically placed hill point to the likelihood of continuous human settlement from early times. Evidence includes archaeological finds from Windsor, such as palaeolithic hand-axes, neolithic flint picks, Bronze Age swords and an Iron Age brooch. Although Roman remains are few, there is ample evidence of Anglo Saxon settlement in the area.

Windsor is first mentioned in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. The name comes from the Old English Windle ore, or about "the river", a real solution, now called Old Windsor, situated about five kilometers from the modern city. Windsor Castle built by William the Conqueror in the decade after the Norman Conquest of 1066 a castle mound and the structure of wood in the manor of Clewer. It was noted in the Domesday Book as "Windsor Castle". At some point after 1086, probably during the reign of King Henry I, the royal family moved three miles from the castle, new construction. In 1110, the use of high crown (Grand Council of State) are recorded as taking place at the castle and King Henry married his second wife in 1121, after the debacle of "White Ship".

The settlement at Old Windsor largely transferred to this "new" Windsor during the 12th century, although planning and new town (including the parish church, market, bridge and leper hospital) did not occur until c . 1170, after the civil war of the reign of Stephen. At the same time, the same upper room of the castle was rebuilt in stone. Windsor Bridge is the first bridge over the Thames between Staines and Reading, which was built during the bridge construction is not common. He played an important role in the national road network, linking London to Reading and Winchester, but also to divert traffic in the new city, sustained success.

The town of New Windsor, a former estate of the Crown, was a colony privileged from the start, apparently the rights of a "free borough", as in other cities had to pay heavy taxes to the king. He had a guild of merchants (known from the fourteenth century the brotherhood, or fraternity of the Trinity) at the beginning of 13 century, and under royal patronage, the main town of the county later in the century. Windsor was granted royal town by Edward I in the charter of the 1277th It gave no new rights or privileges to Windsor but, as one historian puts it, "acknowledged [Windsor] existence and gave a status Legal as a borough". More importantly, as an autonomous city, insisted that cheest "common" to pay for improvements in the city of its own resources. The accounts of the sixteenth century city, survive, although the Most of the archive once great district was destroyed, probably in late seventeenth century.

New Windsor is a city of national importance in the Middle Ages, at least one of the fifty richest cities in the country at the 1332nd His wealth comes from its proximity to the royal house. Repeated investment in the castle brought London merchants (jewelers, merchants, Spicers and Mercer) to the city and gave a lot of jobs for urban residents. The development of the castle under Edward III (1350-1368), for example, was the largest construction project in England centuries during the Middle Ages, and many people worked at Windsor Castle, on this construction project. Henry III, a hundred years earlier, had spent more on Windsor Castle than any other building project royal, with the exception of the rebuilding of Westminster Abbey. The Black Death in 1348, while reducing the populations of some towns with up to 50%, seems to have had less influence in Windsor.

The development of the castle continued in the 15th century. Windsor was a major pilgrimage site, especially for Londoners. Pilgrims came to touch the royal shrine of the murdered Henry VI and the fragment of the True Cross in the new chapel of St. George (1480) and visit the same Kings College at Eton (Eton College), opened in 1440 at the Blessed Virgin Mary. Pilgrims came with substantial sums to use. There were over 29 hotels in Windsor to provide accommodation, some very large. The city was very prosperous. For pilgrims of London Windsor were probably only second in importance to Canterbury and the shrine of Thomas Becket. Henry VIII was buried in St George's Chapel in 1547, next to the body of Jane Seymour, mother of his legitimate son that

Edward (Edward VI). Henry, the founder of the Church of England, may have wanted to take advantage of the influx of Catholic pilgrims who come to town. His will gives that impression.

Probably 30% of the population of the city died, but the construction projects of Edward III brought many building workers for the city, perhaps double the population: the Black Death and plague that followed in 1361 to 1372 , was a "boom" time for the local economy. New people have come to the city across the country and continental European real benefit from spending in the castle. The poet Geoffrey Chaucer worked at Windsor Castle as "master builder" in 1391.
