I posted one picture on my FB page but I wanted to properly show (if that's possible with a camera) what the Castle Keep was like.

know how the archers could shoot through there with

I'm noticing a trend with all of these Hill Forts, Castles, and Keeps: they've all been built on strategic locations that are windy. Granted, it was a matter of survival to be so strategic, on top of a hill to see enemies approaching and such, but why so windy?
