A fort with projecting works, generally level with the ramparts, for mounting artillery to provide for flanking fire. The early rounded or semicircular form was gradually replaced by the four-sided, Italian-style, angled bastion from the early 16th century AD onwards. These are popularly called star-shaped forts.
