Chateaux Gaillard has a number of very interesting features which are worthy of mention.. The keep is very unusual in being basically cylindrical to outward attackers)as shown in the picture) but with 2 square faces fronting onto the inner bailey a design which i believe is unique to Gaillard. The curtain wall of the inner bailey is also very unusual. It has a 'wobbled' design which allowed a defender on the wall a line of fire along the wall it self while remaining protected thus doing away with the need for projecting towers. The castle was built by Richard I and cost £8,000…Alot of money in 1196!!!….
