  22. 22. Concentric Walls<br /> Last line of defense<br />Three layers of walls<br />Sieges could not get through all sets of walls before they were killed by the army<br />People would go to the inner set of walls if there was an attack<br />To strong for sieges to break through all of them<br />
  23. 23. Moats <br />Deep, wide, water filled trench <br />Circled all the way around the castle<br />Made it hard for seiging armies to get their battering rams up against the castle<br />Armies would try to dig under the walls of castle, a moat would prevent this from happening<br />
  24. 24. Drawbridges <br />Large wooden bridge that connected the castle to land (over the moat)<br />This would be down in times of peace<br />It would be put up if an army was attacking, making it impossible for them to get in<br />
  25. 25. Portcullises<br />These were large iron gates that raise and lower vertically <br />They were located at both ends of tunnels that lead into our castle (this was the only way in and out)<br />When our castle is being invaded, we would close the inner gate and wait until the invaders are inside of the of tunnel, then close the outer gate, making them completely vulnerable <br />
  26. 26. Battlements <br />These were crenellated shapes at the top of a castle that make it extremely easy to shoot arrows and other weapons down at an invading army <br />
