I have been asked what is a snappers tunnel.  A sapping crew would dig a
tunnel up to the wall of a castle.  They would then load the tunnel with
things such as pig carcasses and light a fire.  This would cause an explosion
that weakened or collapsed the wall.  OR they would dig under the wall and
put up supports as they dug.  When they were far enough in they would
fire the supports and cause the wall to collapse!!  Countermeasure to a
tunnel was another tunnel dug to meet the invaders tunnel, and send in
to exterminate the sappers.  The tunnels were usually very close quarters and
poorly lit (the reason we use blindfolds!).

Hope this helps!
