Another Prospect of Caernarvon, taken on the East side

Drawn, etched and published by John Boydell British

Not on view

This print offers an expansive view of Caernarfon Castle, a structure in northwest Wales that Edward I began to develop in the thirteenth century. Extensive city walls were completed in 1330. Here, the keep and towers appear at left, the town within the fortified walls at right, and the sea beyond. Cultivated fields and a grassy expanse fill in the foreground, dotted with a man, woman, two children, two hunters and dogs. At right, a road moves towards dwellings clustered near the turreted city gate.
