What were they for?

They were homes for lords, kings, nobles, and any kind of powerful people who lived in the Middle Ages. Sometimes, they had some wars around the castle. If there were wars, then there will be no food. Then peasants and serfs would bring food and live in the castle. It was also a sort of protection to the village behind the castle.

What was it like around the castle?

There was moat surrounding the castle, and over the moat, there was a drawbridge. The drawbridge was able to be pulled incase there are attackers (enemies) around, trying to come over the castle. Then, there will be moat around the castle, so they can’t come over easily. They would have to swim or do something to attack, but they will be tired by the time with their heavy armors. There might be crocodiles in the moat.
