|KEY WORD : architecture / castles|
| Any upright pole or post added to the inside
of a castle wall for extra support. While hikaegui increased the
strength of the wall, they did make it more difficult to move around close
to the wall on the interior because the light was dim and people could easily
fall against these protections.
