The construction of Dublin’s walls was started by the Hiberno-Norse (people of mixed Gaelic and Viking ancestry) in the 10th century. The defences they built surrounded parts of the town with embankments, a wattle fence and later a stone wall. When the Anglo-Normans took Dublin in the 12th century these walls were incorporated and improved upon.
