time Dover Castle had been used as a fort, a lighthouse and a church until Henry II rebuilt it completely in 1180s. Over the centuries the castle and its facilities have been enlarged and improved. The castle was put to its first maior test during the war between King John and his barons. The knights protecting the castle were ready for the attack and fought back the enemies bringing the war to an end. During the seventeenth and the eighteenth centuries several military engineers added more changes and constructed underground barracks in the dungeons of the castle. Those barracks were combined with new tunnels and the dungeons became an underground hospital. That reconstructions took place in the twentieth century, when the castle played an important role in both world wars. After the Second World War new "knights of the twentieth century" stayed in the castle until 1958. Five years later the whole Dover Castle was handed over to the Ministry of Works for keeping and reconstructing it.
D. Dover Castle is associated with numer- —
ous ghosts and strange sounds. For example, in the King's bedroom a woman wearing a red dress has been seen at the west stairway of the castle. Besides Dover Castle has served as locations for some popular
films. In 2009 it
was filmed for The Clocks in Agatha
Christie's Poirot series. And in 1990
it was shown in a version of Hamlet, directed by Franco Zeffirelli.
