In response to today's posting on trenches from Larry Weiss:
Charles Edelman is a military historian and not a philologist. LEME, the
invaluable gathering of lexicons of early modern English, gives numerous
examples of a trench as a bulwark, rampart and similar terms (though not
as a sack of wool) - so trenches could go up as well as down!
