Lore

The Hornburg, originally known as Súthburg, is a castle within Helm's Deep built by the people of Gondor to defend Aglarond. The Rohirrim would later occupy the castle, with their leader Helm Hammerhand sounding a great horn atop the castle before going out to battle his Dunlending enemies. The castle was attached to the north end of the Deeping Wall and was at the end of a road which ran to Helm's Dike.[1][2][3][4][5]
