Treaty Stone Jun 06, 2005
Because of where it was and the fact that it was one of the most populated areas at the time with about 4,000 inhabitants it was a very important city. King John had ordered a castle built there in 1200 well after this walled city was begun around 800 by the Vikings. During the 17th century the castle was besieged 3 times and finally in 1691 two treaties were signed, one military and one civic on this rock, which had previously been used as a mounting block for horses. The pedestal it now sits on was erected in 1865. It sits just across the river from the ruins of King John’s castle. Not the most exciting thing you will ever see or experience.
