How to Capture a Castle

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.
