  • forts near water

    I think that many forts were found near bodies of water because it could be used as a barrier between two parties in a battle. It would slow them down from intruding the fort if they did not have a way to get across the water. It would also be noticeable if there was a boat approaching the fort then they could defend themselves before they got there.'
