All about Castles

Castles were built for the kicking and to protect the king. The castle had a lot of major defense systems for protection. How the castle would work is the king owns everything, but he gives his land to nobles to protect the land, and the nobles give Knights the land to help them out, so the Knights hire peasants to work.


You can find many castles all around Western Europe. The first proper castle was in England in 1066. Are the castles still around today? Yes they are but they are displayed so that people and see them.

Castle Stucture

The major defense system for a castle is the outer wall. The outer wall has towers to watch for enemies and attack them. It also had turrets and archers. Then it had a draw bridge and a gate to stop enemies from coming in.
