A security function used in medieval castles where defenders can rain arrows or stones at invaders in hopes of thinning their numbers.
Castles and Palaces are two different things, a palace is the home of a monarch or lord, meanwhile a castle is a defensive fort to house the monarch or lord. Murder Holes would be uncommon in palaces (unless a monarch was particularly paranoid) but are in almost every castle.
