Craster's Keep is the home of Craster, an ornery wildling beyond the Wall who is a friend to the Night's Watch. It is not an actual keep, but is only given that title by members of the Night's Watch.
Craster's Keep sits atop a low hill with an earthen dike around it. There is at least one gate on the southwest side of the compound and a stream runs around the north end of the hill. Inside the dike, there is also a midden heap, pigsty and sheepfold.
The keep itself is a daub-and-wattle hall that is long and low, made with logs and roofed with sod and big enough to hold thirty to fifty men at best. The door to the hall is made of two flaps of deer hide. The hall is a single room, with a sleeping loft above reached by a pair of splintery ladders. Only Craster has a chair inside, and all others sit on the benches.
