Barbed wire, also known as barb wire, less often bob wire or, in
the southeastern United States,
bobbed wire), is a type of steel fencing wire constructed with
sharp edges or points arranged at
intervals along the strand (s).
It is used to construct inexpensive fences and is used atop walls
surrounding secured property.
It is also a major feature of the fortifications in trench warfare
(as a wire obstacle).A person or
animal trying to pass through or over barbed wire will suffer
discomfort and possibly injury.
Barbed wire fencing requires only fence posts, wire, and fixing
devices such as staples. It is

person.Barbed wire was the first
wire technology capable of restraining cattle. Wire fences were
cheaper and easier to erect than
their alternatives. (One such alternative was Osage orange, a
thorny bush which was time-consuming to transplant and grow. The
Osage orange later became a supplier of the wood used
in making barb wire fence posts.) When wire fences became widely
available in the United
States in the late 19th century, they made it affordable to fence
much larger areas than before.
