Статья  ассириолога Паркера, повествующая о фортах Новоассирийской империи.

It is clear from the royal correspondence of the Assyrian empire and from the annals of Assyrian
kings that the construction of forts was an integral part of the permanent establishment of Assyrian
sovereignty in newly conquered regions. Forts served as garrison outposts in formerly hostile areas
and were therefore the first footholds of Assyrian expansion into recently annexed territories.
They were military centres, from which campaigns and intelligence operations were conducted
into and beyond the frontier, administrative centres where the daily affairs of the surrounding
areas were directed and monitored, and communications hubs through which news and information
were channelled. In addition to these roles, forts or garrison centres also served as conduits
through which the Assyrian ideology of imperialism could be diffused into the periphery of the
empire and the process of the acculturation of the "foreign" inhabitants of peripheral zones could
be conducted.
