LI: To research Norman castles
Use a range of source materials to find out about Norman castles, including both motte and bailey and stone built ones.
Use your findings to create a Norman castles Fact File, which includes both writing and pictures and extra interesting facts!
Add a glossary to your fact file, including such words as keep, motte, moat, palisade, bailey, compound and siege. How do you think the physical geography of a particular place helped the Normans decide where to build a castle?
