Castles built by King William where built to stop the amount of rebellions that they where having. The first version of castles that he built where motte and bailey castles (made out of wood). This worked. He built many of them around the country and forced people by fright to do what he told them to. Soon, he changed some of the castles to concentric castles (made out of stone). These didn't catch on fire easily, rott quickly and are very strong. These enforced Williams laws even more and also protected his country from invasions.

Norman castles were built on mounds.
