Labeled Diagram of a Castle

Here below we have some fantastic diagrams of various castle's throughout history. Now, obviously, since there is no one single caste design, we have labeled diagrams for all sorts of variations. Feel free to comment on whether this page is complete enough. It's a bit blurry in the References, so here is what they say:

1. Barbacan (also said as Barbican) 2. The Ditch or Meat  3. Wall of the outer Ballium 4. Outer Ballium  5. Artificial Mount  6. Wall of the Inner Ballium   7. Inner Ballium 8. Keep or Dungeon

ya i know what you mean . but let me tell you a little story about something i am really angry with. do you just hate it when you make friends with a really nice friend but later on she becomes so bitchy because she thinks she should be late for class , wear a lot of make up and in the future have a lot of boys dancing aound her ,and even getting drunk ?She became friends with another stupid girl and they wore loads of make up and they had lots of people to talk to . and i am all alone . who knows what i should do to make new friends ?

Im sorry but some of these comments arent very appropriate for a school website but I have to agree that this is slightly useful but barley anyone needs this type of castle and you would do much better with some other types of castles as well as just the one. Thanks for your time and good luck.
