The NE Corner of the Fortress at Night

These are development images to show the illumination from a full moon, and to begin assessing the effect of 'artificial' lighting along the walls.

In this case, point light sources have been placed at regular intervals to simulate lamp light, each casting a limited pool of illumination, though at this stage we have not reconstructed any actual lamps. It seems more than reasonable that on pitch dark winter nights, some form of lighting would be required along the ramparts.

With the North Gate to the left, just out of picture, this view includes the
two interval towers east of the North Gate, and the North East Angle Tower.

Today, you would be standing somewhere in the region of Rufus Court, looking towards
King Charles' Tower across the north end of the Deanery Field.
