BMF Talk - How to Capture a Castle

*A Bosworth Medieval Festival Ticket must be purchased to attend this event*

Buried beneath the grey walls of our castles lie some of the most colourful stories in history – tales of triumph and disaster, loyalty and betrayal, ingenuity, and stupidity.

In this talk Julian Humphrys of the Battlefields Trust takes an entertaining look at castles under siege, from the tunnels and trebuchets of the early middle ages to the bombards of the Wars of the Roses.

Tickets are £6 and can now only be purchased on site during the Festival.
