the invention of the abattis dates back to the 16th century, and probably before that (i did no research) and consisted of a wooden fence, with spikes on the end pointed at the attacking enemy. cavalry would be impaled on the spikes, and if they tried to jump inbetween the spikes, the horses would be killed on razor wire (or stuck on barbed wire) that went across the other side. #abattis_abbattis_abbatis
