History Trip to English Heritage site Dover Castle

Remember your AGS History Trips?

Last week, Year 11 enjoyed their first AGS History trip in a while to English Heritage site Dover Castle yesterday, as part of their GCSE Warfare course.

Rising above the famous White Cliffs of Dover, above the English Channel, Dover Castle is an icon of England. Built soon after 1066, this mighty fortress has been the site of royal intrigue and epic sieges, and was at the centre of the crucial effort to evacuate hundreds of thousands of Allied troops from the beach of Dunkirk.

Despite being in Year 11 they couldn't resist sitting on the throne and trying their hand at Medieval warfare. Rumour has it, a number of wooden swords were purchased in the gift shop!
