NOW ONLINE: How to Capture A Castle
in association with The Battlefields Trust
Buried beneath the crumbling grey walls of Britain’s majestic castles lie some of the most colourful stories in history – tales of triumph and disaster, loyalty and betrayal, ingenuity and stupidity. In this illustrated talk Julian Humphrys takes an entertaining look at castles under siege, from the tunnels and trebuchets of the early middle ages to the mighty bombards of the renaissance.
Julian was born and went to school in Southampton. After reading history at Emmanuel College, Cambridge he worked for some years at London’s National Army Museum and is now Development Director at the Battlefields Trust, the UK Charity dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Britain’s historic battlefields. Julian is a regular contributor to BBC History Magazine and the author of numerous books and articles on British battles and castles.
Tune in to the God’s House Tower YouTube channel at 7pm on Thursday April 9th to hear Julian’s fascinating talk.
