Anniversary special: Scrivial is now 2 years old!
Tall walls, millions of bricks, tens, hundreds, and even thousands of acres of land, hidden secrets, Ancient giants full of scars, scars that tell the stories of countless bloodshed and royal scandals yet, they stand resolute in the face of time as a testament to the unyielding will force of the rulers who had built them. we are, of course talking about forts and castles.
Forts & castles are some of the most intriguing man-made wonders, that everyone tends to gravitate towards which is why we were intrigued to find out that out of all the links in the first 4 google search pages, and on YouTube (at all), there is not a single article or video which makes any statistical effort to actually rank them with a proper etiquette. It was a euphoric moment, for it was yet another opportunity for Scrivial to step in and show how it is done.
Thus, let’s have a look at the most statistical ranking of top 10 forts & castles ever.
The ranking algorithm is based on an account of 3 main criterion: Age, Area covered and how tall it is. The most weightage was given to age as the older the fort or the castle is, the more difficult (in general) it must have been to build it, due to lack of technology. The second most weightage was given to its height, rather than its area, because, it is relatively easy to lay several bricks side by side than to stack them on one another. Now that you know how we ranked them, let’s begin!
10. Prague castle, the Czech Republic.
Age: 1146 yrs, Height: 96.5 m, Area: 17.3 acres, Total Score: 6167.9
