Baghott. Random rubble limestone. Section of wall to north of
house adjoins entrance terrace with various circular and triangular
bastions, partly ruined. Some trefoil-headed lancets with iron
ferramenta, designed to suggest more extensive fortress. Two round
profile string courses, lower part of wall battered. To south of
