Craster's Keep is the grand name given to a small, fortified homestead, located several days journey beyond the Wall. It is the abode of Craster, a wildling who lives there with his daughters-wives. Craster permits the use of the keep as a refuge and resupply post by the Night's Watch in return for otherwise leaving him alone and the occasional bribe. The keep is large enough to host a garrison of men.[1]

HistoryEdit

Season 2Edit

Season 3Edit

The survivors of the Battle of the Fist of the First Men take refuge at Craster's Keep.[2] However tensions run high between Craster and several of the black brothers, causing a mutiny in which both Craster and Lord Commander Jeor Mormont are murdered and the keep is then taken over by the deserters.[3]

In the booksEdit

Craster's Keep is not a true keep, but instead a log hall surrounded by an earthen dike, also consisting of a sheepfold, pigsty and midden heap. The hall itself is quite large, large enough to accommodate a few dozen people at any one time. Still, for Night's Watch rangers far out beyond the Wall, its preferable to have a roof over their heads.

The Keep sits atop a low hill which some of the black brothers jokingly wonder if its made of mud or Craster's feces.
