[ the last word ]

as painful as it sounds...

The word 'machicolation' refers to an area projecting from the top of a castle wall, usually supported by corbeled arches. This area featured openings in the floor through which boiling water, molten lead, stones, or other suitably evil materials could be cast upon an enemy below.
