    Just a mathematician with a fascination for architecture and the bronze age. The latter in particular because it is the period that carries the nuclei of many concepts and structures (hierarchies, division of labour, cities, conflicts, trade, ...) that define what these days we call "our civilisation".

    On an eternal crusade for reason, logics, catholicism and chocolate. Mostly chocolate, though.

    I can heartily recommend the Italian Wars mod by Aneirin.

    If I got it right, it is indeed a Scottish bronze age fort, and the second highest in Scotland, I read. Now I must ask you after so many rounds of this competition. Are you an archaelogist, architect, or historian of some sort?
    It is Tap o' Noth. Mainly know now for being a large early medieval (5th-6th century AD) settlement.
