The outside wall of the castle was called the outer curtain wall which was the main layer of defense and wrapped around the castle protecting everything inside. The entrance however was the weakest part of the castle so a new strategy came a long which called for the building of two walls. This made the castle harder to capture.
The new strategy of two outer walls came along in the late middle ages.
In this image you can see the barbican which are the two towers on the sides of the gate where the guards could stand watch. In addition to the barbican you can see the arrow loops that were slots in the walls that were used to shoot arrows at the approaching enemy.
Watch out for the arrows...They'll be coming out of the arrow loops any second now once the guards in the barbican see us!
This looks like the Battlements on the castle. Battlements are the structures at the top of the walls surrounding the castle. They were used as part of the castles defense and the guards would position themselves between the battlements to fire arrows at the attackers.
Here comes the enemy! Prepare for battle!!
