Year 7 & 8 Visit Colchester Castle

Year 7 & 8 Visit Colchester Castle

To enhance their study of the Norman period of English history, Year 7 & 8 visited Colchester Castle, with its origins in Roman history. The boys were fascinated with many of the original artefacts displayed and etchings scratched in the walls, dating back to the 12th century.

The castle is a fantastic place to visit and would be of great interest to any history buffs. Roy, their guide, escorted  the boys down into the basements, which formed part of the original Roman temple and also high up on the castle walls to show us the wonderful  views of Colchester.
