The research project "Topography of Power" at Aarhus University seeks to explore the relationship between a castle site and its owner's social context starting with a pilot study on 11 medieval castles and 62 post-medieval manor houses.
Apparently, there is a correlation between the builder's social status and the visibility of his castle: Royal and ducal fortifications prefer exposed sites, whereas minor castles attributed to a "knightly" or "peasant" context are hidden in wet low lands. In the post-medieval period, this preference of a protected site becomes to a general pattern for manor houses befitting their owners' noble rank. In that period, places are favoured which are shielded against the Western wind. This might be an expression of an increased standard of living – and maybe a consequence of the rougher climate during the Little Ice Age.
