These were thicker in construction but lower and less numerous than the interior ones. They were placed at intervals of 200 to 25c feet and amounted in all to forty or thereabouts. The chief purpose of them was to flank and command the ditch and thus to prevent the enemy from building a dam across it. With this obje projected some distance into the ditch.

The strong, low, semi-circular tower at the Haller Thor is supposed to be the oldest work of this description. Lastly, in the second half of the sixteenth century, the large bastions which bring us in touch with modern ideas of fortification were built.
