The castle was active from 1108 AD to 1750 AD when it was hit by lightning and burned down for the last time. They moved the town down hill in 1750, dismantled the castle to its foundations for its building material, sifted through the burned buildings and took all the building material they could to relocate. I know of three battles fought here, 1200's, 1600's, early 1700s and suspect a fourth battle around the 1400's. HH, Mike

Thank you for the info! So it's a battle-period castle silver! I wonder if someone lost it on the run/fighting? HUGE Congrats!
