Main Gate

MAIN GATE: Two towers 30’ high with battlements,
flank a gatehouse 20’ high. All have holes for bow and
crossbow fire. A deep crevice in front of the place is
spanned by a drawbridge (usually up). There is a
portcullis’ at the entry and large gates at the far end of
the passage. The passage is about 10’ wide and high,
the ceiling above pierced with murder holes, and
walls to either side slitted for archery. It is obvious that
the building is constructed of great blocks of the hardest
granite, undoubtedly common throughout the entire
fortress.
