Dinas Bran!

a site for my new castle

Spring 1260

Site for Dinas Bran CastleI have found the most marvelous hill to build my new castle. The north side is so steep it will be an asset to us and it gives me a viewpoint for miles all around. I am going to use nature to help me it is perfect for the site of my castle. I have decided to call it Dinas bran!

There seems a huge amount of crows around and I think the name russian woman is suitable for keeping away the enemy. I believe this site may have been used before as there seems to be some signs of a settlement lower down.

I have the perfect plan for my castle with plans for a gate house and a keep and I intend to have a huge ditch around the south and east side of the castle to discourage any unwelcome visitors!
