Why Did William Build Motte and Bailey Castles?

William needed to get a place to protect the soldiers that he used to control the country. Small numbers of Norman soldiers could hold off rebellions or attacks by being in a castle and the Motte and Bailey Castles were quick and easy to build as they were made of wood.
