On this page I present the stonecutter's marks which I encountered while researching mediaeval castle architecture outside of our borders. Currently among them are Czech Republic, Romania, Austria, Germany and Italy.

On rare occasions a researcher has the possibility to get some information about stonecutter's marks of certain object from competent personel available at the site. Somewhere it is prohibited to photograph the interior (even when we explain that we're interested only in stonecutter's marks) and we have to use paper and pencil to capture an image of the mark.

Image list of some more important objects where I could find a larger number of stonecutter's marks:
