With the rise of gun powder siege weapons in Europe, it is often stated that stone fortress defences were replaced with β€œgreat earthworks” in some of the more notable sieges. Are there any remaining examples of these earthworks? Or detailed descriptions that can be found?

The concepts and strategies of sieges and defences has always been of interest to me since I can remember. I mean what kid wouldn’t think that large siege works, trebuchets, and brave men scaling great walls is pretty darn interesting. However, following the remarkable technological shifts that came with gun powder weapons, there seems to have been a rather inverse relation with the defence technology. With in a few generations the large and complex stone fortress defences that had been in favour since the late Roman period seemed to have fallen out of fashion for simplistic mounds of dirt and wood.

As much as I have read about these defence systems, I always come up short with how to imagine them in my head. Are there any living examples of these defence lines? Perhaps historically accurate reproductions? I would love to fill this mental gap with something accurate.

Thanks in advance!

This is Joydens Wood, on a much nicer morning than this. These are ancient earthworks known as the Faesten Dic, which once formed the defensive boundary of Saxon territory in Kent.

Books on Earthworks

Anybody know of good books on earthworks? (Other than the designers manual, at $400 a piece) Looking for something covering swales and water catchment (and lots of stuff I'm sure I don't know).

Also, who owns the copyright to the designers manual? I would love if they put that back in print.

ELI5: What is the purpose of the green powder spread on earthworks at construction sites?

Often at construction sites there will be major landscaping, and especially for roadways, there is often a green powder spread over the bare soil. What is its purpose? Is it to prevent weed/grass growth before the correct grasses/plants are laid/seeded?

Is this wall in Nigeria really the largest Earthwork in human history?

I've stumbled across this potential Unesco World Heritage site called Sungbo's Eredo, the person who showed it to me made some very intriguing claims, such as this was taller than any walls in ancient Rome and nearly as large as the Great Wall of China.

I've tried looking into it but there only seems to be a Wiki article on it making the same claims, with all of the sources for that page seeming quite dubious or non-existent. Also a number of online articles are making the same claims and touting it as an amazing undiscovered part of human history.

My question is, how much of this is true? Can anyone verify any of these claims? I'm not making any judgements, my gut is just telling me something is off here and every picture I've been able to find just looks like either basic earthworks or pictures of hillsides without any references which were posted on Afrocentrist blogsites like this: https://blackattraction.tumblr.com/post/31768734296/osun-osogbo-sacred-grove-osun-state

hiring earthworks guy -- should i ask him to provide me a contract?

i live in rural maine, and am hiring someone to rebuild my driveway and a retaining wall.

he's a personal connection through a neighbor, and a bit old school -- guy is pushing 70 years old. his cell phone very well may be older than i am. he doesn't do email. after meeting me at my property to discuss the project on several occasions (including me drawing a mock-up of what finished project will look like), and showing me some of the work he's done, i verbally suggested i'd like him to do the project after he verbally quoted me a dollar amount.

can't reiterate enough that he's a bit old school -- i'm not sure if he's going to present any sort of written quote or a contract/scope of project document. but i know he has a very excellent reputation locally, having worked for many of my neighbors and lived in the area his whole life.

should i press him to present some sort of "scope of work" document/contract? a written quote?

EDIT: thanks all... just called and left him a message clarifying that i expect he'll have some sort of "scope of work" contract for time & materials...

Why is Agtek Earthwork so expensive?

I know it's a good tool but it seems there are competitor programs that do the same if not more. What makes it worth the price? Just started at a company that uses it and wanted to buy it and start practicing at home but with the price point it's nearly impossible. $25k is a bit ridiculous.
