comment What buildings could be found in the inner ward of a castle?
The second picture is a reconstruction of Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight that I found on Wikipedia. The motte and bailey castle was built in the 11th century; this reconstruction depicts the 14th. The fields may merely be artistic license; I can find no references indicating they farmed inside the walls. The area is a garden today, see gardenvisit.com/garden/princess_beatrice_garden
