At first, castles were made up of nothing but earth, with timber towers and buildings. In later stages of castle development, castles were built of stone, or converted to stone. Mortar was made of water, sand, and lime mixed together.
Early castles were made of wood and built on hills of ‘mottes’. Surrounded by a high, wooden palisade, motte and bailey castles were used widely until the Norman invasion of 1066. Later stone castles were made using stones which were placed one on top of the other which resulted in erecting walls which were up to 10 feet thick and very tall thus they were strong.
Castles were initially made of wood. In the 10th century, lords began to build their castles out of stone. European castles were developed from fortified camps that were built by the ancient Romans and also from fenced villages of prehistoric Europeans.
