Drzewica Castle was built between 1527 and 1535 by Archbishop of Gniezno Maciej Drzewicki. The Archbishop built the castle on the peripheries of the town, by the river Drzewiczka and encircled the fortress with moats, separated by a bulwark. The building's plan is based on a regular rectangular shape. Its defence systems are based on four square towers located in each corner of the castle.
The building burned down in 1814, remaining a well preserved ruin. Thus, the castle did not undergo any later modifications, remaining one of Poland's best preserved residences from the first part of the sixteenth-century.References:
Easter Aquhorthies stone circle, located near Inverurie, is one of the best-preserved examples of a recumbent stone circle, and one of the few that still have their full complement of stones. It consists of a ring of nine stones, eight of which are grey granite and one red jasper. Two more grey granite stones flank a recumbent of red granite flecked with crystals and lines of quartz. The circle is particularly notable for its builders' use of polychromy in the stones, with the reddish ones situated on the SSW side and the grey ones opposite.
The placename Aquhorthies derives from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning 'field of prayer', and may indicate a 'long continuity of sanctity' between the Stone or Bronze Age circle builders and their much later Gaelic successors millennia later. The circle's surroundings were landscaped in the late 19th century, and it sits within a small fenced and walled enclosure. A stone dyke, known as a roundel, was built around the circle some time between 1847 and 1866–7.
