A paragraph about castles.

I first became interested in castles when i was young. I played with castles and knights and i built many castles out of legos. I also read many stories that were set in castles. I learned many interesting things while I was studying about castles. Castle took a long time to build. It could take six years to build a castle and could require as many as three thousand people. Some were laborers and others were skilled craftsmen. Castles were built to defend an area such as a port, a river, a town, a road, or natural rescources like a mine. One of the best locations for a castle would be on a hill, so that the castle defenders could see the invadors comming from water or land. King John of England had over one hundred castles.
