Eighteenth century siege warfare meant weeks of labor for the soldiers, not only on the trenches, but in the rear areas where special siege materials were made and stored.

In constructing the siege lines, engineers and sappers used quantities of gabions (wickerwork-like baskets), fascines and saucissons (bundles of stout wooden sticks), and fraises (heavy pointed poles). These materials of war were temporarily stored in this ravine until American troops were ready for them on the line.
