Early English castles did not originally contain prisons or dungeons, as imprisonment was not a common form of punishment. However, purpose-built prisons and dungeons in castles became more common after the 12th century.
A dungeon is a room or cell in which prisoners are held, especially underground underground and are generally associated with castles. These dungeons were usually pitch black and filthy with disease.
