this is what an english castle looks like (or the one near me anyway)
second one is of the crown courts, which is part of the castle.. lol.. still english castles arent much like u expected, but then theres many types of them
Atleaste you have some of them left the moste of our castles are burned down, after all the wars. we only have some few ruins left. we only have alot of palaces and country mansions left.
An american who dosn't know how a castle look like why am I'm not surpriced
Same with Canadians, we don't have any so-called castles here. There are many buildings that were built Victorian-style and what not long time ago, but they don't look anything like the real castles.Originally Posted by Adriano
But I'd love to see and go into one of those old British castles. I think Scotland has the best, I know some people that went there and praised it alot.
yeah they do have some pretty amacing Castles in Britain. and they are well preserved. It is not like those in my country. I think that those in DK was just as amacing but unfortuanally they all "close to it" destroyed we acctually had one in my city but there is nothing left of it. It's not a secret that we had pretty many of them.
But the main reason why Britain have so many left is that it's a freaking island and therfore alot harder to conquer then DK was. And it was not surrounded by enemies like we was. (Sweden, Norway, Britain, Germany) And therfor we was overrun several times.
And as I recall Britain have not had near as many wars on their own land as we have had.
But one thing is for sure and that is that the Roman impire never succeded in conquering us "the Vikings" they where acctually afraid of us.
This was todays History Lesson
lol yep it's true, we survived pretty well due to being an island. Although Germany made quite a large attempt at destroying Britain in WW1 & WW2!!! Some of the castles here were destroyed because of that and some were destroyed way before then lol

ok, so it doesn't look destroyed from there... but... it's pretty bad on the other side!
These castles look pretty nice, even when destroyed!
I am a history-nut, and I love visiting museums and what not. I will definitely visit a real castle one day. In fact, I heared you could be one in France, they got so many of them and they can't pay for maintenance.
your not the only one my friends call me a History Geek Well maybe there is a reason. It might be because I'm hoping that I soon will study History or archaeology(classic, Middle Ages or prehistoric) at the university.
Good for you, and take my advice, go to Egypt, it's like a Mecca of history There are so many historic stuff over there.
Have been there, it's truely magnificent. when I can afford it I will defently visit Egypt again.
Great then, and I too want to go back there one day :hopefull:Originally Posted by Adriano
lol my mum's an archaeologist anyways, i make the third history geek then, i'm studying it for A level.. but we only seem to learn English and French history.. the French stuff is sooooo funny!!!!!Originally Posted by Adriano
the castles etc in london are pretty amazing.. so is stuff like the tower see, England is good for something
Hmm, England isn't the most historic country on earth Besides the castles, they have those mysterious stones (forget their name again ) and that's pretty much it.
It's the same in Europe, I don't really know of a country that has huge collection of historic stuff (maybe Turkey.) And the French history is probably medieval at earliest, but it's still interesting.
It's all better than here in North America, there is no history whatsoever, we just go to museums to see old stuff.
