How And Why Did Castles Change? <ul><li>Because The Motte And Bailey Castles Were Being Burned Down So Much They Decided To Make A New Castle,The ‘Stone Keep’ Castle Fire Did Hardly Anything To It So They Had To Make New Ways To Attack It. </li></ul><ul><li>From The Motte And Bailey Castles Towers Were Added To The Structure For Additional Defence And To Serve As A Final Retreat In Times Of Attack.The Earth and Timber Structures Gave Way To The Traditional Stone Structures. </li></ul><ul><li>Castles Changed So Much,especially When They Were Attacked But The whole design Changed And The Structure. </li></ul>
  4. 4. An Example Of A Medieval Castle <ul><li>The first stone castles were usually centred on a large tower. The earliest known stone tower was built at Doué-la-Fontaine, France, in c.950. In 1079, work started on a great stone tower at London, now known as the White Tower, at the Tower Of London, and at a similar time at Colchester Castle. The great stone tower, donjon, or keep was much stronger than its timber predecessor, and its height gave defending soldiers a good view and better line of fire. A great tower provided secure storage for money and documents as well as offering more comfortable accommodation for the nobles. </li></ul>The White Tower At The Tower Of London
