The famous fortress for the Capital of England firstly built by William the Conquerer in 1078. Since the White Tower, several rigns of defenses have been added, along with many buildings.
It has served many purposes, such as; a fortress, a palace, a prison, a place for execution and torture, an armoury, the royal mint, a public records office, an observatory, and since 1303, the housing of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.
First built by William the Conquerer adjacent to the southeast wall, was to protect the Normans as much as to defend from invaders. Using Caen Stone specially imported from France, he set Gundulf, Bishop of Rochester as the architect. (To not be confused with Gandalf)
The second wall was built by Richard the Lionheart along with a moat. This moat was not useful until thew reign of Henry III used Dutch moat-building techniques. He also turned it into a palacial residence. Edward I Built another curtain wall and filled in the original moat and built another outside his circle of defense. The Tower remained a residence for the Royalty until Oliver Cromwell demolished the old buildings.
I would be very interested in hearing your comments and or reviews anyone. To let you know, I uploaded the three maps; Caerphilly Castle, The Tower, and Lakeside Camp as a test to see if they would be successful. If they were, I would go back to the drawing board and edit them to make them more challenging and in depth. So anyway, any reviews are neccessary to the development of these maps.

I highly thank you for your lengthy immaculate review of my pitiful map. I will deffinetly change some things around as soon as I get back from Japan. I made it a river on the inside because of a friend who lives below me, I have never built a map that he couldnt defeat, so the river is there out of exasperation, and I stupidly did not take the time to change it before uploading. I will be getting back at the end of the month, so I will change it then. Thank you again Fintrollx.
