Crysis at Camber Castle


The UK's Camber Castle is one of a series of so-alled Device Forts built on the orders of King Henry the VIII in the early 1600's during a time of a heightened risk of invasion from England's then-eternal enemy, France.  The fortification lies on a body of water at the mouth of several rivers in East Sussex.  Seen in this drone video by JokerVision, the fort was re-designed in about 1540 to a concentric configuration.  Within just a few decades, artilllery forts had moved to a star-shaped configuration, leaving Camber obsolete.
