A checkpoint provides movement control and defense and can be part of a more extensive fortification system with surveillance, cover, and fire functions. The most effective protection of defensive structures is provided when they are combined with natural obstacles, mountains and ravines, rivers and swamps, and impenetrable forests. People have long settled where the landscape can protect them. The sharper the relief, the older the woods, the greater the chances for survival and development.
