castles

midevil castles were designed to defend the village and the king inside there were three layers and all had steel gates the main entrance could have three gates witch would take a vary long time to breach because the enemy would be firing at you from murder holes

castle siege

there were many different strategies to breach or get inside the walls but first armies tried to weaken enemy forces by catapults and arrows but the enemy would be ready for them no matter what but even if the enemy got inside they would find them selves in a massive empty courtyard still under fire by archers if they made it in the second part would have soldiers and more archers the last part is the heaviest defended because that's where the king lives the majority of the army would be there
