The remains were found beneath the ruined walls of Jacob's Ford, an overthrown castle dating back to the Crusades, which had been lost for centuries

How does one misplace a castle for a few centuries? I guess they didn't have Amber Alerts back then.

"How does one misplace a castle for a few centuries?"

Well, we "lost" James Cittie (Jamestown) for a few centuries, and it's only 400 years old, so I guess it's possible to lose a castle over a much longer period of time.

well, if you read the sentence very carefully, it is clear that it was the Crusades, not the castle, that had been lost for centuries.
i always embed gps chips in my castles, and i have never lost any of them.

Amber Alerts? Back then? No, back then they would have been "Tree-Sap Alerts"!

Always put GPS chips in your castles; you never know where they may wander off to otherwise.
