          Most of the structures that we consider as 'proper' castles were built during the Middle Ages. Unlike other buildings, such as a church or a house castles served more than one purpose. A castle was a home for its owner and family, a place where guests could be entertained, and often the local center for justice.     Castles were built strong enough to defend its occupants while acting as a base from which attacks on enemies could be launched. The word castle has become a generic term used to describe many types of fortifications.
     Kings and queens, moats, dungeons, and knights are usually associated with castles.



Learning about castles is stupendous early learning fun!
