Ages 7 to 14 years. Selections from medieval art, and modern photographs and illustrations trace for children the evolution of castles from fort to magnificent home. Life in a Castle shows the activity around the castle, from the lords and ladies in the Great Hall and the Solar, to the cooks in the kitchen and the servants and craftspeople in the bailey. Children will also learn about: the master mason and the other craftspeople who built the castle; how castles were defended against attacks; siege weapons; crusader castles built in the Holy Land; feeding the castle community.
