After taking power, the Normans built castles all over England to assert their authority. At first, these were fairly simple fortifications with a wooden or stone keep on a raised earth hill called a motte, and a courtyard, or bailey below, surrounded by a ditch and fence.
For more details about how these were created, watch the video or take a look at our handy spotter's guide to Norman castles on page 13 of our latest Kids Rule! magazine!See the latest Kids Rule!
