Year 10 Historians Visit Stunning Norman sites on Field Day

19 Jun 18

Year 10 historians enjoyed a glorious day out in Norfolk exploring a series of stunning Norman sites. Castle Acre showed us just how much a new Norman lord could impose themselves on Anglo-Saxon society with both castle and a magnificent priory. The theme continued in Norwich with a visit to England’s most elaborate Norman keep with its dominant position over-looking a town once half the size of modern day Woodbridge yet still the second largest English town. Perhaps more than anything else the power of the Normans was best displayed in the towering heights of their cathedrals and Norwich is no exception. Navigating cloisters once filled with the quiet shuffle of Benedictine sandals we found our way back to the coach and an end to an excellent day.
