King Edward I of England began having defensive castles constructed around Snowdonia in Wales in 1278.    
These castles were based on the latest principles of military architecture.       
After Wales had been conquered, Edward had a second batch of castles built.

Castles are strongholds and of course have a denfensive value. They also represent centres of military power, from which Edwards forces could secure the local territories.

You send in a band of thugs, force people to build 'em a lair and then use it as a base to rob from.   Long live imperialism! :)

The castle and walled town of Conway in North Wales were built by King Edward I in just five years from 1283 to 1288.
