Castles Unlimited

Dedicated to the study and promotion of British castles.

CastleQuest Discussion Forum

This is actually part of the "Castles on the Web" site, but deserves its own link. There are active discussions going on by other like-minded folks out there about building modern castles! Please go visit and participate.

Historic Irish Castles

The title pretty much says it all.

Castle-Related Groups & Sites

Somerville Manor

"Somerville Manor is an interactive medieval living history farm, located two miles west of the village of Lava Hot Springs, Idaho. Somerville Manor is open to the public for group or individual visits. The citizens of Somerville Manor are ready to show you what life was like for your ancestors in Europe 700 years ago. "

  Timber Framer's Guild Builds Two Trebuchets!
 

"Over a 15-day period, in a field adjoining [Urquhart Castle, overlooking Loch Ness in Inverness, Scotland], the volunteer timber framers built two full-size trebuchets of competing designs, with an international team of engineers and medieval historians contributing their expertise. In constructing these machines, NOVA hoped to demonstrate the tools and techniques available to a 13th century carpenter. The final test was knocking down a masonry replica of a castle's curtain wall."

The Crossroads Medieval Village

"The Crossroads Project is a medieval village development north-east of Yass, New South Wales, Australia (about 50 minutes from Canberra). The property is owned by a co-operative, which aims to re-create a medieval village and castle, and its surrounds of farmland, forest and hamlets. Our intention is to provide excellent facilities for medieval crafts and skills, for the co-op members and anybody with an interest in medieval times. "

The Parthenon in Nashville

Full-sized replica - whoda thunk. It sure is incredible, though!

Sites Worthy of Your Visit!

  The Hunger Site
 

"The Hunger Site is the world's first "click-to-donate" site where more than 65 million visitors have donated more than 7,700 metric tons of free food to help feed the hungry. They have done this by visiting The Hunger Site daily and simply clicking a button. The donations of staple food, paid for by The Hunger Site's sponsors, are distributed to the world's hunger hot-spots by the United Nations World Food Programme."

  The Rainforest Site
 

"Visitors to The Rainforest Site can save a free area of rainforest with the "click of a button." These donations, distributed by The Nature Conservancy, are paid for by The Rainforest Site's sponsors. The Rainforest Site was founded by GreaterGood.com, which also operates The Hunger Site."

  Global ReLeaf
 

"The site was developed by ENN, the Environmental News Network and American Forests. The original goal of the site was to plant 20,000 trees to restore forest ecosystems. Overwhelming support made that possible in just three weeks and has allowed us to continue planting even more trees. We are inviting Sponsors to help us continue this effort beyond the pilot phase. Our ultimate goal is to plant one million new trees globally."

League of Natural Philosophers Links

Bizzare Stuff You Can Make In Your Kitchen

"It is a sort of warped semi-scientific cookbook of tricks, gimmicks, and pointless experimentation, concoctions, and devices, using, for the most part, things found around the house. These are the classics. Strange goo, radios made from rusty razor blades, crystal gardens... amateur mad scientist stuff."
