Transcript The Castle, Wall 'ifications adjoining it commands a splendid view to the north. There, too, on the parapet-wall, may be seen the hoof- marks of the horse of the robber-knight, Ekkelein von Gailingen, whose story we have already narrated (p. 43). Here for a moment let us pause, consider our position, and endeavour to make out from the conflicting theories of the archaeologists something of the original arrangement of the casdes and of the significance of the buildings and towers that yet remain.
