deborahknowlesYou could look at the concentric castles of Wales built around 1300-Caernarvon is a good example. I think you can safely say that all design changes were due to the advances in weaponry and the builder wanting to look good! A castle was a status symbol and deterrent to any would-be attacker. I think Caernarvon was built by Edward I. (not personally!) By the 1600s, the High Middle Ages were over and gunpowder could have blown any castle apart.

I hope this helps a little - it should give you a starting point anyway!
