the dark knight is probaly made up because they would be knights in silver armour in the night so they look like dark knights but there just in silver armour.

The first people to visit Castle Hill were probably hunters and gatherers of the Mesolithic age, camping amongst the forests which at that time covered the land. In the Neolithic and Bronze Age, there appears to have been widespread travel or trade along the river valleys connecting the Yorkshire Wolds, the Peak District and the Mersey and Ribble estuaries

What is a motte and bailey castle?

A motte and bailey castle is, as the name suggests, made up of two parts: the motte and the bailey.

The motte is a raised mound or earthwork with a stone or wooden keep (a fortified tower) on top. The bailey is a courtyard enclosed and protected by a ditch and a palisade (a wall made from lare wooden stakes).

Kayne S wrote:

Stone keep castles were built all over Medieval England, many by William the Conqueror. They replaced the many wooden castles that had been built, and were designed for strength and security.

Kayne S wrote:

The keep was a strong tower located at the centre of a castle. The first keeps were made of wood and were part of motte and bailey castles. These were soon replaced with stone keeps. The first stone keeps were rectangular, but later keeps were often circular (shell keeps) or based around irregular shapes.

what is a knight?

a knight is a man who serves the king and his kingdom and knowing he could lose his life. he is honorable and courageous and will charge to an enemy army with his comrades and will pass down his wealth and armour to his family if he may die

Jake-I think you might be a bit muddled with dates. Castles were built long before the 18th century. Remember the first castles were built around 1066 by William the Conqueror.
