A drawbridge is a bridge which can be raised and lowered. It is often found at the entrance to a fortress.

Using a windless the bridge can be "drawn" up, hence the name.

The entrance to a fortress was usually the weakest point in case of enemy attack, and a drawbridge made access more difficult.

Underneath the drawbridge there would usually be a moat, a deep trench, filled with water.
