King William I plans to build up to 500 castles across England to house his large army and intimidate Anglo-Saxon natives.

Most Anglo-Saxons have never seen a castle before. Castles are two things: centers of defense in case of an attack and living quarters for the king’s soldiers. Castles are typically made of stone and are located on difficult terrains such as rivers or hills. Walls, moats (water surrounding castle) and deaths traps deter anyone who wants to visit.

Below are pictures of a few castles built under the order of King William I
