Ring fortress (UK) or ringwalburg (NL), or trelleborg (DK) or borgring (DK) or Ringwallanlage (DE). These were the type of fortresses built at from the end of the 9th century -many along the North Sea coast- against attacks of amongst others the Vikings. Also in the Netherlands -which most of it was then called Frisia- remnants can be found. But also in French- and Belgian-Flanders, regions Ostfriesland and Nordfriesland (Germany) and in Denmark.
