ADDING NEW BCA/WCA references

We are aware that the BCA list is not complete yet. If you find castles or fortresses NOT listed yet, you can contact BCA to add this reference(s).  We will reply asap and will ask you to send additional info (links, photos, location etc). BCA will check all parameters and decide if the reference is added or not.

To reduce the workload, BCA will add new references only on the 1st of January and the 1st of July each year. A reference is valid from the moment it is published on the BCA website.
