The Normans introduced the first proper castles, starting with the wooden Motte and Bailey castles, to England following their victory at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. They needed to protect their new kingdom, so as a result the early years of Norman occupation saw a frenzy of castle building.
Vajdahunyad Castle - built between 1896 and 1908 as part of the Millennial Exhibition celebrating 1000 years of Hungary since the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 895. Originally it was made from cardboard and wood, but it became so popular that it was rebuilt from stone and brick between 1904 and 1908. Today it houses the Agricultural Museum of Hungary, the biggest agricultural museum in Europe.
