History Edit

Watch towers were simple structures that provided a good view of the surrounding countryside and shelter for a few soldiers. From the tower the soldiers watched for raiders or advancing enemies. Using messengers or signals of some sort, the watchmen could provide early warning to commanders. Early warning was important for protecting people and livestock, and assembling military forces to oppose invaders.
