He notes how the rigid distinction between ‘secular’ and ‘ecclesiastical’ architecture has impoverished the study of castles: encouraging the study of their military function, while leaving their architectural aspects relatively neglected. As Heslop explains, the traditional interpretation of the building has several problems.

This is compounded by several blind spots around the keep, enabling any intruder to work at the foot of the wall unscathed.
