King William I needed some castles that could be built quickly and cheaply after in the war in order to stop rebellions. Motte and Bailey castles were ideal as they were made out of wood which were both cheap and quick to build.
Motte and Bailey castles were built in the 11th century just after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. They were built by King William I (William the Conqueror) who was the new King of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Whales are not castles they are animals
It was mainly for protection and weapons store but the bigger the castle the more tough you look. Treasure was also stored in castles.
Motte and Bailey Castles started in the Norman time, After King William Duke of Normandy. They were built in England, Northrubria. :)
William Duke of Normandy
There is no current King of Wales. The last Welsh King was Owain Glyndwr (I think) and after the English conquered Wales, they had the heir to the throne given the honourary title of Prince of Wales. That's why Prince Charles is called the Prince of Wales. Once the Queen dies (or abdicates) and Charles takes the throne, he will be the next King of Wales and Prince William will be the Prince of Wales.
wales is the MOST popular country for castles and it is also a very popular country

Because he had built strong secure castles and he had enough of them around the contry and he was happy with their design which was a pointed tower castle.
No Prince William is not The Prince of Wales. That title is held by the eldest son of the reigning monarch. The reigning monarch is Queen Elizabeth II and her eldest son is Prince Charles, who is Prince of Wales. Prince William is known as Prince William of Wales because his father is Prince Charles. When Charles becomes King, then Prince William will become the Prince of Wales
Currently, Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. If he dies, or chooses not to become King, his son, Prince William of Wales will become King.

In Medieval England, it was William the Conqueror who introduced castles to England. He did so in 1066 CE, after the victory against King Harold in the Battle of Hastings.
he built castles every where and gave trusted friends land if they made sure villagers behaved.
William built castles to defended himslef, so William made the castles incredibly hard to attack. He built a mote so they would have to swim across and then there was the task of opening the door. there was a latch that you had to pull to get the door to open. William also had catapults and high towers to see if anything or anyone was attacking.
}Mote and bailey castles appeared in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. Mote and bailey castles were a common feature in England by the death of William the Conqueror in 1087. Their construction was the start of what was to become a massive castle building programme in England and Wales. }A few English timber Motte and Bailey style Norman castles had been constructed by Normans who had been invited to England by King Edward… Read More

They changed them because the motte and bailey castles (which were made out of wood) had lots of weaknesses: Sets on fire easily Rots quickly Isn't very strong Also, King William (William the conqueror) (the ruler in those times) built motte and bailey castles to stop any rebellians and would only take a few days to build. Concentric castles were… Read More
The period in time when the Stone Keep Castles (Stone Castles) were built was the Middle Ages. This is because the Middle Ages started in the year 476 and finished in 1453. The Stone Keep Castles were built in the 11th century in about the 60s and 70s. They were replacements for some of the Motte and Bailey castles that were built in 1066 just after the Battle of Hastings by King William I (William… Read More
At first it was simply a castle made out of wood surrounded by a motte. Surrounding the motte was the bailey. And surrounding that was the wooden wall (this was how the normans built their castles, because king William was from Normandy and now he is king of England, he built Norman castles in England). This was all to easy to attack so they eventually built a more modern castle.
he decided burnt down buildings/castles and made the britsh re-build them
Stone Keep castles (Stone castles) are quite a few centuries old. They were built in the 11th century by King William I (William the conqueror) not long after he took over Britain after the battle of hastings. Stone castles however, weren't the first castles William built in Britain. He first built Motte and Bailey castles. The reasons for this were that they were cheap and easy to build as they were made out of wood… Read More
england has the most castles or scotlend
Some ladies, even queens, lived in castles, though I doubt many liked it. Castles were forts, for the most part, and they were usually not nice places to live. After William the Conqueror took England, there was a period of unrest that lasted for quite a few years. Members of the nobility often lived in castles during this period for their own protection. Later, as things settled down, many moved to manor houses, which were… Read More

Nope, Queen Elizabeth II is still the Monarch, Prince William of Wales isn't her Heir, his father Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales is going to be King when his mother the Queen dies (if he does die before her, in which case Prince William will be king) Prince Charles has stated he will take the royal name King George VII because Charles is a bad name in the British monarchy (Charles I started the… Read More
concentric castles can be found in Wales and England.but there isn't that many because there was not much need to replace the stone castles.
william built over 500 castles
The early castles along the English -Welsh border were built by the Normans to protect their newly acquired country. 300 years later more castles were built by Edward I as part of his efforts to conquer Wales.
The most famous example of a 19th century castle is Neuschwanstein in southern Germany. Other castles include: Gwyrch Castle (Wales) Bryn Bras Castle (Wales) Penrhyn Castle (Wales)
Prince William is now the Duke of Cambridge. He will not become the Prince of Wales until his father Prince Charles, the current Prince of Wales, becomes King. Even then, the title of Prince of Wales does not begin automatically. Prince William must have an investiture which bestows the title of Prince of Wales upon him.

because it has a hill with a castle on top and a water river type thingy around it
Well all over England, especially over the border of wales. This is because William wanted to look strong and to defend England in a limited time!
