Living History

On Friday 22nd March Year 7 visited the National Civil War Centre in Newark. There was plenty of opportunity to dress in contemporary costumes and wield 17thC weapons including muskets, pistols and pikes (all replicas of course!).

We re-enacted the trial of Charles I and the unfortunate Matthew lost his head at the hands of Ethan, his executioner! We also took part in pike drills, learned how to load a rifle and tried to identify battlefield injuries.
