Try contacting your local herald. S/he should have a copy of the SCA
pictorial dictionary. Pedro has already suggested Parker's _Glossary of
Heraldry_. You might also ask at your library for Fox-Davies or Von
Volborth's _Heraldry: Customs, Rules and Styles._

Castle gates (two very large doors between two towers, with no other part
of the castle showing) are no longer registerable.

While certain types of knots are registerable, Celtic knotwork is not,
because there is no standard terminology to describe different patterns.
