English Castles

The first English castles began to appear about a thousand years ago. They were built for diverse purposes, but the most important was to prevent any further Viking raids, French invasions, Scottish raids and importantly, to show England its own magnificence. That's one of the main reasons why William the Conqueror ordered The Tower of London built.
