Motte and Bailey castles could have been located all over France and Britain but now you can't because th ey have all rotted down or have been replaced by Stone Keep castles (Stone Castles). These Motte and Bailey castles were built by King William I (William the Conqueror) in the 11th century. BANANAMAN123(NAME OF USER) EDITED FROM HER ON:::They were built by William in Britain after he took over England in 1066 at The Battle of Hastings.

they were built to scare the englishmen and to defend him.

EG.

William also put these in to keep the citizens in order, for example, lets say a guy named jack did crimes... he wouldn't any more because the castles had guards in and he would be arrested if he did .PLEASE LIKE:)

The reasons that some of the Motte and Bailey castles got replaced were that they weren't very strong, they rot within a few years and that they burn easily. The Stone Keep castles were the complete opposite of this.
