Some people use the term Dark Ages to indicate the time from 476 to 1066, and the term Middle Ages for the time from 1066 and 1485. This question makes sense in that context. Castles of the Dark Ages were more primitive and were usually of motte and bailey construction, with walls built of wood. They could be built in a few weeks, but were not very strong and did not last very long. Castles of the Middle Ages (using this naming system) were built of stone. They took much longer to build and lasted better. There is a link below for more information.
