This week Danièle talks about castles: what they were like, what they were for, and where we get some of the everyday words we use to describe them.

Some of the terms described in this episode include motte and bailey, keep (donjon), crenellation, concentric walls, trebuchets, undermining, drawbridges, murder holes, oubliette, Great Hall and trestle tables.

    You, work, do not be afraid of us, we will not touch you. The best way to get rid of temptation is to succumb to it ... Do not dig another hole yourself. The limitedness of narrow-minded people is copied by the unlimited number of them! Only eggs can be steeper than mountains. Everything should be in a person. (Pathologist)
