Humans have constructed fortifications and military heritage using a variety of complex designs for thousands of years. The fortifications and military heritage extant from the distant past to recent days have served as a major link to the history of the establishment and development of human settlements, nations and even entire regions. From prehistory to modern times, fortifications have been a necessity for human communities to defend themselves. Fortifications have also been integrated into the surrounding cultural landscapes and terrain, and their respective communities and settlements in a variety of ways.
