Armenian architects of Cilicia were great experts on fortifications and military architecture. The most outstanding example of this, according to T.S.R. Boase, an expert on Crusader buildings, is the Caste of Anamur. It had thirty-six towers, many of them in the innovative horse-shoe style. At the fortress of Lampron, Armenians designed circular openings for nocturnal signalling, sort of optical telegraphy. Armenians, most famously Avedik, had an excellent knowledge of siege machinery.
