Modern Marvels: Castles & Dungeons

Explore darkened dungeons and gaze down from atop high towers as Modern Marvels reveals how medieval castles were much more than just a place for kings to call home. Massive and imposing, these formidable edifices were constructed with such architectural flourishes as moats and murder holes that made them both practical and impenetrable. The inclusion of prisons, courthouses, and treasuries ensured that some castles were virtual communities unto themselves. But violate a king's decree, and you could likely end up in the last place many criminals were likely to see - the dreaded torture chamber.
