History - Medieval curtain wall
Curtain wall is used to describe the set of walls that surround and protect the interior (bailey) of a medieval castle. These walls are often connected by a series of towers or mural towers to add strength and provide for better defense of the ground outside the castle, and are connected like a curtain draped between these posts. Additional provisions and buildings were often enclosed by such a construction, designed to help a garrison last longer during a siege by enemy forces. Examples of curtain walls as part of castles are at Muchalls Castle, Scotland and Dunstanburgh Castle, England, the latter of which is in a ruined state.
