A design style among some of the oldest in Castle building, Machicolation was the flooring spaces located between Corbels on a Battlement. This simple design was designed to allow defenders of a Castle to fire or throw objects down on a attacker. First seen in Middle Ages Europe after The Norman Conquest, Machicolation was initially a construction design of The French. Wooden Hoardings could be incorporated with this design (along defensive walls) and well as platforming inside of Defensive Towers.
