Hello,
in the last week we have followed the invitation and have the Lütjenburg visited in Schleswig-Holstein. It was more a meeting with the theme "The craft - and architecture in the early Middle Ages" and the visit of archaeological monuments ground where once stood motte castles.

Development plan of the castle:




Coming from Lütjenburg you have the following view of the castle in Nienthal.



The entrance gate to the castle:
It is up to now not yet clear how such a gate looked like, only the dimensions of such gates are known. During excavations of such gates found the post holes. Through the gate you can see on the left side of the barn complex.



The barn and the Knight's house as seen from the tower.



At the house of the knight can be seen on the right side of the "floor heating" for the building. The building was heated from the outside (see picture), and the heated air rose to the interior of the building.



The house of the knight inside.



The blacksmiths:




The Tower:
There were probably two goals. A goal down at the bridge and one at the end of the bridge. The gate at the end was provided in all likelihood have a drawbridge.




End of the first part.

Hi,
thanks for your comments, on it goes.
How can you now imagine to build such a tower.
First on a flat surface, the basic framework of the tower has been established (Phase 1). The hill is does not exist. Once the skeleton of the tower stood until the hill was filled (Phase 2). The necessary ground was taken around the tower to the ground. Thus simultaneously created of the moat surrounding such a moth.

Phase 1:



Phase 2:



The palisade around the tower:



Images of the wooden beams which used in the tower.









A window of the tower:



Monks and nuns of the roof:

Really interesting and also this must be a great inspiration for you? Also there are so many details and somehow you are known for translating these into 1/72 scale. I am currently working on the watchtower model and it is just fantastic, easy to build and impressive!


Best regards
