Transcript —^ The Story of Nuremberg longer be traced in its original shape. Experts hold trically Opposite views both as to the u the height of it. But that is the way of expert Wi shall probably not be far wrong in concluding that this wall was originally a mere crenelated crowning ' ot the escarp of the ditch ; that catapults were worked from the space enclosed by the two walls ; and that the chief object of the outer wall and the enclosure was to prevent the enemy from working at the main, or inner, wall and towers with hi ble turrets. Later, when the use and effectiveness of artillery developed and guns supplanted catapults in vigour as well as in fact, some time at the end of the fifteenth or the beginning of the sixteenth century, we may suppose that this old crenelated wall was removed, and the escarp wall of the ditch was raised and strengthened and provided with embrasures for large cannon, and rounded off on the outside so as to neutralise the effect of shot striking the face of the wills. In this form the exterior wall is well preserved, and can be a many places in the course of a walk round the outside of the town. At many points in the circumh but chiefly where the fortifications are accessible (c^. near the Krauen Thor) the parapets of this Curtail present a somewhat remarkable arrangement. The parapets, pierced with embrasures for cannon, are surmounted by timber hoards or filled in with brick and mortar, like the old English half-timbered house these hoards (wooden galleries roofed in with arquebusiers and even archers, who were still employed at that period, might be placed. Pieces in were covered by these hoards just in the pieces in the " 'tween-decks " of a man-of-war.
