A barbican was a medieval defensive structure controlling access to a gateway. They were fortified outposts or gateways, typically forming the outer defence to a fortified city or castle.
Usually barbicans were situated outside the main line of defences and connected to the city walls with a walled road called the neck. With improvements in artillery in the 15th century, barbicans lost their importance. Few barbicans were built in or after the 16th century.
An excellent example of a surviving barbican can be found at the Rock of Dunamaise, close to us here in Portlaoise.
