By the time the enemy climbed these steps to attack those within they were too tired to hang around and probably traded their swords for a glass of wine.

The stairs lead to the temple of Aphrodite in the town of Lindos on the island of Rhodes in Greece.

Bynx,

The Japanese had a similar idea except that occasionally, the way up thru the interior of their castles had very low entranceways, so the invading warriors had to bend down to get to the next level. This gave the defenders a tremendous advantage.

Of course the invaders didn't always fight by the Queensbury rules, they simply burned the whole castle down around the defenders.

Great perspective.

Aloha
