ENCastles played a prominent role in the battles between the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and Teutonic Order. In the 14th century, Lithuania had a castle system consisting of wooden castles on mounds, strengthened by stone castles. In the current territory of the Republic of Lithuania, there were 64 wooden castles dating back to the 13th through the early 15th centuries, and 6 stone castles. Together with the castles in the current territory of the Republic of Belarus, they formed the following 3 lines of defence: 2 of them in the epicenter of the country (neighbourhoods of Vilnius) and 1 in the western border marking Samogitia, along the river Nemunas up to the Upper Nemunas in the current territory of Belarus. Pressure was high for these defense systems and other castles. During the period of 1345-1377 alone, the Teutonic knights held some 100 marches (70 from Prussia and 30 from Livonia) to the Lithu- anian territory ñ on average 3 marches a year. Passive (located on the walls and towers) and passiveñactive (combined with thrust raids outside the castle territory) defenses have been distinguished. [From the publication]
