* I have been taken to task for including some imaginary castles on this site, but defend myself in that I enjoy inventing castles and their histories. There is a separate web site devoted to these efforts at Imaginary Castles.

History of this Web Site and Other Information, Such as Changing Background Colors
This is the 'newest' version of Grobius Shortling's web page Castles, Stone Circles, and Ancient Monuments, which was originally posted on the Internet in late 1996. As stated there, every (well, almost every) site mentioned on these pages has been visited by the author and judged from experience. Statements of fact or opinion may be wrong or wrong-headed, but they are honestly given. The castles are grouped by country on separate web pages; there are also some individual places web pages. All photographs were taken by the author, some as early as 1959 (with my Brownie).
Some people may find it difficult to read the text against this background. You can change it to one of the following by moving the mouse over the X's, then click the one you like: X X X X X X X
The web site dates back to 1996, which makes it an 'old man' in Internet terms; it also means there has been a lot of cosmetic surgery done on it over the years. What I have tried to do is not impose too much hi-tech junk onto it and still keep its original purpose going. All the enhancements have been designed to improve the site, not screw it up, but that is up to you to judge!
