The shell keep in its classic form is a ring, sometimes polygonal,replacing the presumed original timber palisade at the summit of the motte. This produced an enclosed circular courtyard, in which stone or wooden buildings were constructed, often butted up against the curtain wall. Sometimes the circular wall was built not on top of the motte but around its base.
There is a diagram here http://www.angelfire.com/wy/svenskildbiter/castle.html
