The way a castle was built was that if any one was trying to climb up over any of the walls the person would be shot at from two directions. The lords family and himself would live in the castle. A part of the purpose for a castle was to be impressive.

5: 88 | Castles for built on high ground. Also most times it wasn't flat, which would make it harder for invaders.
6: I am king Harold the 3rd from 1675. I have been running this castle for 10 years. There have been three attacks on the castle since i have been here. It is very well protected so they didn't do much harm. We are under attack right now but they wont get in. Every day we have a big feast, so everyone is ready when some one attacks.
