History Trip to Leeds Armouries

12th December 2016

On Monday 5th December, the History Department took 64 year 7 students to Leeds Armouries.

The boys took part in two workshops. The first allowed students to delve into the world of the medieval knights. Students discussed how armours and weaponry had changed from 1066 to 1485. They had the opportunity to hold and put on the armour.

The second session evolved around catapults and trebuchets experiments. the students were investigating how far they could aim using a variety of materials.
