http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Szurpi%C5%82y
http://lt.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%A0iurpilis

Somewhere read that yotvingians built a wooden castle in a la viking style. Maybe You have heard something more.

Thanks for Your post. Hope one day Polish (or polish-lithuanian as cooperation) archeologist will find something more. Yotvingians were bad-asses, but they were very advanced in jewelry and so on.

Yes, Mr. Čekuolis spoke about them and Šiurpilis in one of his show serie.
He had said, that Polish archeologist found a large complex of hillfort structure and so on.

Bytów castle, Pomeranian Voivodeship

"The castle in Bytów was built by the Teutonic Knights in 1398-1405. The major construction works were supervised by Nicolaus Fellensteyn, a master builder of the Order. The construction of the castle fell to the period when Jacob von Reinach was the procurator of Bytów and Konrad von Jungingen was the Order's Grand Master.

During the Thirteen Years' War (1454-1466) Bytów Castle was ceded by the townspeople of Gdańsk to the Polish King, Kazimierz Jagiellończyk. In 1454 it was granted by the King to the Duke of Pomerania, Eric II, whose family, the Gryfits, ruled the castle and the lands of Bytów until the death of the last member of the dynasty, Bogusław XIV.

In 1637-1657 the castle and the land of Bytów were administered by Polish officials. Badly damaged by Swedish troops in 1656, the castle and the lands of Lębork and Bytów were ceded, by the power of the Welawa-Bydgoszcz treaty, to Frederic Wilhelm I, Elector of Brandenburg. When the Brandenburgians arrived, they found the castle and the town, as well as many of the nearby villages damaged and looted by the Swedes in 1656."

Castle in Szamotuły, Greater Poland Voivodeship



The oldest part of the Castle Complex in Szamotuły is a Gothic Halszka's Tower from the 15th century. At the beginning, it had a typically defensive function, and in the 16th century it was readapted into living quarters. Halszka, the princess of Ostróg, who was also called Black Princess, was living there for 14 years.

The main building of the castle is only slightly younger than the tower. Originally, it was built in the Gothic style and then rebuilt in the spirit of the Renaissance period. It was being modernized and was gradually losing its original defensive character in the next centuries. The last renovation from the second half of the 20th century restored a little the Gothic form of the monument. Today, the fittings of a noble residence are presented in its interiors. Authentic furniture from distant periods, rich fabric, carpets, Chinese and West-European porcelain as well as other monuments can be seen there. In the entrance hall there is a genealogical tree of Szamotulski and Górka family and a foundation plaque from 1518.

After partitions of Poland, castle belonged to Saxe-Coburg and Gotha family and House of Hohenzollern.
