AD. 1409     September 21.

On third day patrolling around the ancient hillfort of Kajamo the warriors of the Turku castle finally found the robbers hiding in the forest. One got away and one was killed. The rest were taken prisoners and will be hanged by the neck at Kerttuli hill in Turku town. From there their carcasses will be seen as a warning to all travelling the great coastal road from east and all comers from north via the “Härkätie” or oxen road. Their blue faces will tell that there is law at Turku and it resides in the mighty castle.

Here is a rather tired “huovi” or castle guard if you please, after manhunt : Rantakyy
