Because of the stupid virus I am confined to this place (my house) and with nothing to do. So I get on Minecraft and try to make a Norman Castle thing. So in the following work pieces i will be explaining what they are and why!!
So a Motte and Bailey is a castle of wood to mainly intimidate random peasants who thought of kicking the king/nobles ass (to be honest they could just burn it down). The second reason is because of the strategic advantages. There is a hill which you can loose arrows down onto the enemy head and the fact the you have to clime the hill. Finally, the Bailey can survive 11th/12th century siege.
